Heroic Driver Sacrifices His $100,000 Tesla To Stop A Car With An Unconscious Man Behind The Wheel

Elon Musk responded to the act in a truly gracious fashion

Normally when you see a car driving erratically, you take a glance at the driver upon passing only to give them the stare of death. But when a German man noticed a Volkswagen Jetta weaving, then hitting guardrails at full speed, he saw something far more troubling than a bad driver – the man in the Jetta’s driver’s seat was unconscious.

The Tesla driver, a 41-year-old man, quickly went into hero mode. He called emergency services to notify them in preparation for what he was going to do next.


Pulling in front of the car, he sacrificed his pricey ($100,000) automobile and risked his own safety by overtaking the weaving car, then gently applying the brakes to slow down. He managed to safely bring both cars to a stop, and the paramedics arrived shortly thereafter.

The 47-year-old Passat driver was likely suffering a stroke, according to this German newspaper, and the effort of the other driver likely saved his life and possibly the lives of others on the road.

The damage to both cars is estimated at $10,000, but at least one of them won’t have to worry about the repair bill:

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
