In a tweet directed at Tesla, actress Mary McCormack shared a video of her husband’s Model S ablaze in Los Angeles.
“No accident, out of the blue, in traffic on Santa Monica Blvd. Thank you to the kind couple who flagged him down and told him to pull over,” she wrote.
“… thank god my three little girls weren’t in the car with him.”
The dramatic footage, posted on Saturday, shows fire spewing out the side of the car.
Firefighters arrived on the scene to extinguish the blaze.
In a statement to ABC News, a Tesla spokesperson wrote, “We offer our support to local authorities and are glad our customer is safe. This is an extraordinarily unusual occurrence, and we are investigating the incident to find out what happened.”
The “West Wing” actress specified in a later tweet that her husband’s Tesla was not on autopilot.
Lt. Dan Nagelmann, from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, told ABC it was either a battery or mechanical issue that caused the fire and that there was no collision.
McCormack is married to British director Michael Morris, who has directed episodes of Netflix’s “House of Cards”, “13 Reasons Why”, and more.
