BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - It’s a story you would think was part of a movie.

The image of a crashed Tesla Model 3 in the streets of downtown Birmingham was shared across social media earlier this week, with the owner saying the vehicle was taken while in valet parking at a hotel.

Through Tesla Information Site Evidence, it’s been revealed the vehicle was driven at speeds exceeding 100 mph before the joy ride ended with the Model 3 totaled.

Jacob Knight, the owner of the Tesla, joined Good Day Extra on Friday. You can watch the interview below.
