WY Tesla Kills One in “Veered” Crash

The highway patrol report discusses loss of control related to oversteer on a clear and dry road, December 29, 2023.

According to a preliminary report from the Wyoming Highway Patrol, a Tesla Model Y was traveling west near Manville on US 18/US 20 when it steered right toward the edge of the roadway and overcorrected back to the left. As the Tesla crossed both lanes of traffic before steering sharply back to the right, an eastbound Ram 3500 combination braked hard and steered left to avoid the Tesla. The front of the Ram hit the rear driver-side door of the Tesla, causing it to spin counter-clockwise and exit the north edge of the roadway.
