after crash video extraction possible ?

(I did google looking for an answer, my apologies if I missed something obvious)

Assuming my USB video drive has nothing recorded on it since 2/14 (another post),
is there anything in the car that Tesla technicians can access about a crash,
like video?

If so, are local (California, S F Bay Area) police/sheriff departments
likely to know how to contact the correct group at Tesla?

thanks!

It’s possible the drive does have something even though dates are wrong. It’s easy to get corrupted especially if full. Chances are low but possible.

I’ve heard Tesla has Video too, especially if you don’t have USB setup. Not sure if they still do if you do have USB setup. Worth contacting them for sure.

I assume you mean the black box data?
