Footage posted by West Wing star, Mary McCormack, shows flames coming from under the car of her spouse, British director and producer Michael Morris.
She posted a video of the car stopped at the side of the road with flames and smoke coming from underneath it.
“This is what happened to my husband and his car today,” she wrote. “No accident, out of the blue, in traffic on Santa Monica Blvd. Thank you to the kind couple who flagged him down and told him to pull over. And thank god my three little girls weren’t in the car with him.”
Tesla cars, which run on electricity stored in large battery packs in the floor of the vehicle, have been involved in a few recent incidents where the cars have caught fire after high-speed impacts. Gasoline-powered cars also sometimes catch fire even without a collision.
