100mph Tesla Ejects Passengers, Kills Three

A tragic car crash involving a Tesla traveling at over 100 mph has resulted in the deaths of three people and severe injuries to three others. The incident occurred in Pasadena, California, over the weekend. The driver, 22-year-old Moheb Samuel, was operating a 2018 Tesla Model 3 when he lost control, hit a curb, and crashed into a vacant building on Foothill Boulevard at around 2:38 am on Saturday.

The high-speed impact caused multiple passengers to be ejected from the vehicle. Samuel and two passengers, 19-year-old Stefan Michael Pfeiffer and another man in his 20s, were pronounced dead at the scene. The three survivors, Emerson Newquist, 18-year-old Bella Ramirez, and another 17-year-old girl, suffered significant trauma, including broken bones.

Authorities have launched an investigation into the crash, examining whether Samuel, who had a prior DUI and possibly a suspended license, was impaired at the time. Alcohol was found in the vehicle, but it is not yet confirmed if Samuel was driving under the influence. The Pasadena Police Department, represented by Anthony Russo, emphasized the severe trauma experienced by the survivors due to the magnitude of the collision.

The crash has had a profound impact on the community, particularly at Maranatha High School, where some victims were students. John Rouse, the head of the school, called for prayers and shared his condolences, noting the immense despair felt by the parents and the community.

This tragic event highlights the dangers of high-speed driving and the potential consequences of impaired driving. The investigation continues as authorities seek to determine the full circumstances leading to this devastating accident.
