Tesla: Third Model S Fire In Past Two Months

Move over Lamborghini and Ferrari, we have a newcomer in the "burn to the ground for any ol' reason" category. The culprit this time seems to be a vehicle destroying trailer hitch. Yes, I said trailer hitch. eek!

The fire resulted from an accident when the car hit what was believed to be a trailer hitch, according to company spokesman Patrick Jones. "After the impact, the car safety systems warned the driver about the incident and instructed him to pull over to the side of the road which he safely did," said Jones. who said a team of investigators is traveling to the site of the accident.
