Jack Rickard of EVTV tears down a Model 3

We believe this car Jack's tearing down is the Tesla/Energy employee's car that crashed in the creek in Morgan Hill, Calif. One of the very early car crashes in a Model 3. Silver, same wheels, hit a tree in front and looks similarly damaged on the side from what we can tell. Also big clue it being 0079, so employee car and probably originally in California.

Here's a link to Electrek's photo of the car from Morgan Hill accident:

And here's the Salvage Yard's info on the Jack's car. The lot is in San Martin, just south of Morgan Hill. You can get a good look at the condition of the car in the photos provided including that smashed in windshield. Same leaves still in the car all the way from Calif to Missouri :p. Same VIN.
