The scene of the accident after the crash.
An accident with consequences occurred in Walchwil ZG on Thursday. Shortly before 10:30 a.m., a 40-year-old woman loses control of her Tesla during a turning maneuver. The car then crashes through the construction site barriers, hits an excavator and gets stuck in a pit.
As the Zug canton police write, the excavator was pushed forward by about a meter. A construction worker was hit by the two-ton vehicle and slightly injured.
The accident resulted in property damage of around 20,000 francs. Exactly why the woman lost control of her Tesla is now being examined in more detail.
