A man driving a Tesla Model S saw a Volkswagen Passat swerving erratically on the Autobahn, slamming against a guardrail multiple times. When he noticed that the person behind the wheel was unconscious, the Tesla driver sprang into action.
The driver in the Tesla called the fire department, and then pulled his Model S in front of the out-of-control Passat.
He then tapped the brakes so the Passat was contacting his rear bumper, and slowly, the two cars came to a halt. Shortly thereafter, the fire department came to assist the unconscious driver, who likely suffered a stroke.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Wednesday that the company will pay to repair the Model S.
In appreciation, Tesla is providing all repair costs free of charge and expedited. https://t.co/D68HNJcCoQ— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 15, 2017
