Another Eco-Friendly Inferno: Tesla Bursts into Flames on North Carolina Highway

The driver, Craig Lippe, was able to safely exit the vehicle and no injuries were reported. WECT6 reports that a Tesla recently burst into flames on I-140 near Wilmington, North Carolina, after running over a piece of metal on the road.

The driver, Craig Lippe, was returning home from work when the incident occurred. “A truck driver next to me opened up his window and was pointing frantically. So I pulled off into the breakdown lane. And when I got out you can see flames from underneath the car in the front,” Lippe recounted.

Unlike traditional vehicles that burn combustible materials, supposedly eco-friendly electric vehicles can expel immense energy from their batteries when they are damaged, leading to a much larger fire.

Despite the dramatic incident, Lippe remains a staunch supporter of electric vehicles. He expressed his continued faith in Tesla, stating, “I still love the Tesla and probably going to order another one.” This is just the latest in a long line of Tesla fires. In May of 2022, Breitbart News reported that an electrical malfunction caused the vehicle doors of a Tesla vehicle to lock shut after the car caught fire, trapping the driver inside as smoke began pouring in through vents.

The driver kicked out a window to escape from the electric vehicle. Read more at WECT6 here. Lucas Nolan is a reporter for Breitbart News covering issues of free speech and online censorship. Follow him on Twitter @LucasNolan.
