Tesla driver saves BMW driver's life from exploding X1

It's a good thing they noticed!

A Tesla driver saved another road user's life when they spotted a fire starting at the bottom of the other's car.

A BMW X1 driver was casually driving along the motorway in Woodbridge, New Jersey unaware that their car was starting to smoke. A nearby Tesla Model Y driver noticed this and decided to pursue warning them of this.

It took a lot of honking and shouting from the driver's wife, but finally, the X1 driver noticed the problem, stopped, put their hazard lights on and jumped out of the car. It's a good thing they did this when they did because the car went up in flames just seconds after the driver exited the vehicle.

The car was engulfed in flames almost instantly and kept exploding from thereon. It truly was a lifesaving moment and it was all caught on the Tesla's Sentry camera system which is aimed at filming around the car and acts as an advanced dashcam.

    • The Tesla hardly saved the X1. The driver's basic sense of morality saved the driver of the BMW.

    • If it was any other car nothing would have been said about it

  • I don’t think that person went to the recall safety event for this generation. It’s a recent issue for the air conditioning system and it involves all E8X platform cars excluding the Z4
