Interesting video from last accident with a Tesla

The youtube video is clearer:
It shows the oncoming car (blue car) striking the car immediately in front of the Tesla, at which point all of it's airbags deploy. They then struck the Tesla.

The driver in the oncoming car (blue car) appears not to have been buckled in as their arms are flailing outside the window as the car spins in the air and lands back on the road.

Glad someone was able to walk away from that cluster...

Quality looked identical to me.

Horrible accident. Thank you Tesla for manufacturing such a safe car in accidents. Still shocked to see the Tesla driver get out after that head on front end collision like that. That blue vehicle, have to wonder what caused the driver to cross into the oncoming traffic. The vehicle in front of the Tesla was driving close to his lane line but clearly the fault lied with the vehicle that also then hit the Telsa (Tesla was well with in his lane). It was a Model S. If you scroll down through Spansk's twitter thread there are more photos of the Model S and the blue vehicle posted by Israel Melendez, Jr.
