Here's the first Tesla Cybertruck crash on a public road

The Tesla Cybertruck is officially here and on sale, and now it’s also been through its first public crash. Through pictures initially posted online by Reddit user Boddhya and reporting by The Autopian, we have the details on what went down for the incident between a Cybertruck and a Toyota Corolla.

A description of the incident was initially provided to The Autopian by the California Highway Patrol.

“On December 28, 2023 at approximately 2:05 pm, CHP Redwood City units were dispatched to a two-vehicle crash on SR-35 (Skyline Boulevard), south of Page Mill Road. Our preliminary investigation indicates a Toyota Corolla was traveling south on SR-35 southbound, south of Page Mill Road, at an unknown speed, when the driver, for unknown reasons, turned to the right and subsequently struck a dirt embankment on the right shoulder. The Toyota then re-entered the roadway, crossed over the double yellow lines into the northbound lane, and crashed into a Tesla Cybertruck traveling north on SR-35 northbound.”

There was only one injury reported from the scene, as the driver of the Cybertruck had a “complaint of pain.” The CHP classified it as “a suspected minor injury,” and the driver declined medical transport from the scene. The two other passengers in the Cybertruck were not injured, nor was the driver of the Corolla, a 17-year-old as reported by The Verge, that hit the Tesla.
