Tesla Model X occupants unscathed after plane crashes into car

The government-owned plane was carrying several DEA agents when it attempted an emergency landing on a street near Houston.

A Tesla Model X owner has praised the vehicle's safety after being struck by an airplane attempting an emergency landing on a highway near Houston.

The Drug Enforcement Agency's single-engine Cessna lost power and was forced to land on a public road. The aircraft snagged a power line on the approach, however, and slammed into several vehicles.

"GOD and this CAR truly saved us today," said Model X owner Oniel Kurup. "Not a scratch on us. No one believed me when I called them to let them know a plane crashed into me. Tesla, people thought It was a prank call. Wife laughed at me at first."

No occupants were seriously injured in any of the damaged vehicles, while one of the three DEA agents suffered minor injuries.
