Here’s video of another Tesla going up in smoke; note the snap, crackle and pop:
INDIANAPOLIS — Two people were killed in a fiery car crash early Thursday morning in downtown Indianapolis.
The crash happened around 1 a.m., near the intersection of 16th and Illinois Streets.
Authorities say a navy blue Tesla, headed north on Illinois Street, left the road, hit a tree and a building and caught fire.
The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the driver as Casey Speckman, 27. The passenger, who later died at the hospital, was identified as Kevin McCarthy, 44.
McCarthy was the president and CEO of ‘Case Pacer’ and Speckman worked in case management software sales at the company.
McCarthy graduated as Valedictorian from the FBI Academy and was the youngest FBI agent in the country at the time. He also served on several local boards.
Casey Speckman was an Indiana University and law school graduate, who was engaged to be married next fall to her college sweetheart, Brandon Seniff. Her family released this statement:
“The Speckman Family is grieving the sudden loss of Casey, beloved daughter, sister, cousin and fiancee. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this difficult time”
