PORTLAND, OR — Two people were sent to a hospital Thursday morning after a driver crashed a Tesla through a business in Portland’s Kerns neighborhood, reports KPTV.
Portland Fire Rescue crews were called to the scene ear Northeast Couch Street and 10th Avenue.
Officials did not say what caused the incident, but the Tesla slammed through a glass wall before pinning and trapping a woman behind her desk.
