Watch stunning video as Tesla takes to the skies and crashes into the building at 70 MPH

New video shows a terrifying moment in Columbus, Ohio last week when a speeding Tesla blew through a red light, jumped a curb, ran over a planter, flew down a staircase and then crashed through the glass wall of a building.

The 2020 Tesla Model S ended up in a conference room at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, according to the Columbus Dispatch. The vehicle was estimated to be traveling at about 70 kilometers per hour.

Although no one was injured, Frantz Jules, the 63-year-old driver of the car, was taken to a hospital for examination, local ABC station WSYX reports.

The Dispatch reported that Jules told police he lost control of the brakes and was unable to slow the car. However, a witness told police that it appeared as if he was speeding to pass a traffic light.

Jules was subpoenaed for failing to control the vehicle and the National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.

Local CBS Station WBNS said the crash caused $250,000 to $300,000 in damage to the building.
