The 46-year-old driver "became airborne and crashed over 100 feet into the opposing lane", according to Barrie Today. The driver was charged with risky driving.

An investigation found the vehicle went airborne over railroad tracks and came down in the oncoming lane more than 100 feet away before crashing into a tree.

The driver of the four-door Tesla was clearly doing way over 30mph.

According to authorities, the driver had been travelling at a high-speed, launched the electric vehicle through the air and eventually hit a tree at a nearby school parking lot. It's a wonder the two people inside the auto got away with only minor injuries.
