Thanks. Leaves lots of questions unanswered. They pointed out the clean entry in the front which I agree is highly suspicious.
Eh... all it would need is no cap at the guard end and I don't see why not a clean entry, nothing behind it in the Tesla. You can find LOTS of similar crashes around the web, most were fatal.

Hell of a fake IF it is... even the debris around it everywhere match, angle or entry/exit... No way IMO, it's a real and scary deal!

I've seen multiple towing videos where the tow operator has to extract a car from a guardrail impaling it. So it does happen occasionally, even to ICE cars. The impalement isn't even a design flaw of Teslas, because a guardrail will still puncture around an engine block and go through the passenger cabin.

If anything, that makes Teslas safer, because the path of least resistance just happens to be directly through the center, between the seats, and out the trunk, which keeps the passengers safe. :)

There is some really bad guardrail design in a lot of places. Google: guardrail design lawsuit.
I don’t think I want to out of fear some nasty images might surface!!! I can only imagine what it could do to someone after seeing it go right through all those metals cars in Garsh post... yeeeesh. 😣

First reaction: Holy sh*t.
Second reaction: Damn, the flashers are still working, AND it doesn't look like anyone got hurt!
Third reaction: It's just a flesh wound. We'll call it a draw.
