Stopped off at the Primm Supercharger on our way home from the Hoover Dam, and this is what we found: (on a side note, why is there no charging infrastructure at the Hoover Dam?!)

Wow - that is some serious damage. I wonder if it was a Model S owner who ran it over it going reverse instead of forward or hitting accelerator instead of brake when backing into the spot. I'm hoping it was that and not someone trying to make a statement by running it over with their coal-rolling diesel.

I think the guilty driver thought he/she was in Drive but was actually in Reverse when the accelerator pedal was depressed and then failed to react in time to the parking sensor alert, or perhaps their car was an early one one with no sensors.

Wow, incredible.

Place like that ought to have lots of cameras around. Someone has video I'm sure. Very curious if it was intentional or accident.

Hmmm. Unless it was a highly re-inforced truck, or a true junker car, I can't imagine this was done intentionally. There must be considerable damage to whatever vehicle did that.

Wow. Glad to see it got repaired. No telling from here how it happened.
I know I would not have gotten near the station paired to the wrecked one. No telling what kind of short circuits or other problems would have been present.

There was a second contractor working on the Supercharging cabinets & what looked like running new wires, the paired stalled were coned off & yellow caution tape was wrapped around the pedistal.
