    Did one get knocked off on its side? Or was that a accident that just got photographed?

    The linked article is only 6 sentences...

    "...A Peugeot van that was also on the transporter did not fare so well after striking the bottom of the bridge and falling off the delivery truck and onto the ground..."

    That's weird: I thought the AEB specifically did hit the brakes when any overpass appeared.....

    What kind of delivery was this? There are other brands on the truck.

    Every Tesla needs a wing man to jump on the hand grenades (and bridge overpasses) that can get in the way of fun...the wingman's name: "Peugeot".

    If only the Tesla that heroically stopped the German car with the passed out driver had a "Peugeot" wingman, he could have called the authorities while his wingman eased in front of the careening car, thereby saving the time/hassle of the repairs.:rolleyes:

    Based on the position 3 on the truck, the Peugeot saved the life of the 2 Tesla Model X (Protect Every Underinsured Gorgeous Elon-iferous Outstanding Tesla) :) The truck was on it way to the SC Bern.

    The way it looks to me is that the transport had pretty much cleared the bridge, and the last vehicle clipped the bridge and fell off. It must be slightly taller than the Model-X.

    That's not the correct way to understand the situation.

    You see, making such deliveries is such a backward way of doing these things....that the driver was going in reverse.

    Notice the truck says "Tesla 100% electric" on the side behind the door. Perhaps this a prototype of an all electric semi Elon mentioned?

    ;)

    But looking under the "Tesla 100% electric" you will see the Mercedes-Benz star ;)

    True, but Mercedes and Tesla work together, c'mon man! Don't ruin my conspiracy theory with your logic! ;)
