On Friday, the Lake Forest Patch reported about a Tesla striking a dwelling on Thursday afternoon, with the Orange County Fire Authority as its source and photos corroborating the news. The incident, attributable to the substantial media coverage Tesla crashes receive, seemed noteworthy. Though there was an issue with the report.
The car that was captured in the report wasn't a Tesla, rather a white Polestar 2 sedan. This particular model is seen as a competitor to the Tesla Model 3. Thankfully, due to its dependable safety features, the driver remained unhurt in the episode.
Social media users corrected the initial article from the Lake Forest Patch, prompting an update with the headline "Car Crashes Into Garage In Lake Forest Thursday". An editor's note was also posted explaining that the original version had incorrectly identified the vehicle as a Tesla, and the image of a Polestar 2 was replaced.
