Tyler The Creator Totals New Tesla After Falling Asleep At The Wheel
Tyler The Creator is counting his blessings after crashing his Tesla into another car as he fell asleep at the wheel.
The 27-year-old opened up about the crash the next morning over Instagram, telling his fans that he had totalled his new Tesla as a result of falling asleep at the wheel.
“My big doopy [sic] ass usually go to sleep 10:30 (i wake up at 7 er morn) and guess who wanted to finish music super late and dosed [sic] off for a few seconds while driving home, im a dumb ass bitch but lil mama don’t have a scratch im lucky,” Tyler wrote on a selfie posted to his story.
“I calmly jumped out the back and called the people. thanks elon for the excessive airbags u a qt. good day sir,” Tyler said in reference to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
The rapper -- who rose to fame as part of the controversial rap group Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All -- reportedly rammed his Tesla Model X into a parked car near UCLA’s campus.
The impact was reportedly so strong that the parked car, a Honda CR-V, was thrown 15 metres down the road. Luckily, no one was injured and no arrests have been made following the incident.
According to XXL, the owner of the Honda was apparently pretty chill over the whole sitch -- especially once he found out who exactly ran into his car.
"Tyler, The Creator hit my car," he said while smiling.
"That's crazy, I wasn't even here, I guess. I didn't even look at the police report, I got it right here. At first, I mean this is the second time, it's totalled for sure. So I was like 'damn' at first. But like find out that Tyler, The Creator hit it? I'm probably gonna get a decent check. So, it's whatever. It sucks though for sure," he added.
