If you were on Highway 101 going south late this morning that you probably are familiar with what happened today. A Tesla hit the median barrier causing several other cars to also be involved. The Tesla apparently ended up on fire and I hear the driver is in the hospital but the other people involved are okay. What's even more insane to me is take a look at the Tesla. It literally is burnt to half! If you were in that huge traffic backup how long did it last? What exactly did you see? More on today here.

HEADS UP! SB 101 at Hwy 85 in #MountainView...a multi-car crash blocks ALL lanes. Traffic SOLID from San Antonio Rd. Use SB 280!— Mark Nieto (@TrafficmarkSF) March 23, 2018
