The back row of the Tesla clipped a red Mustang that was towed away after the crash, before coming to rest in front of a black Volkswagen. 

Shocking footage from the scene shows metal debris which was sent flying across the highway.  

Despite the severity of the crash, everyone involved escaped with their lives. Four people were injured, three of whom were taken to nearby Memorial Regional Hospital.

One of the injured was left in a serious but non-life threatening condition. 

‘There was a Nissan GTR — it blew a red light right on the intersection of Three Islands Boulevard and Hallandale Beach Boulevard and checked the back of the Model X Tesla, which completely fell apart,’ witness Ronnie Gnesin told Local 10 News. 

Ronnie added: ‘The Tesla flew apart. Next thing you know the back wheels are flying this way. They hit this car over here, left a whole mess on the road. Everybody stopped.’

Witnesses of the crash quickly rushed to the aid of the Tesla driver, who sustained a minor injury to his leg and was miraculously not seriously harmed. 

Passing motorists described it as sheer good luck that the Tesla driver was able to walk away from the incident largely unscathed. 

As yet, no arrests have yet been made. Charges are expected to be laid against the Nissan driver, according to reports.
