Collin Flynn Car Accident, Death – The Mercury News stated that Colin Flynn, a 38-year-old Tesla employee, was detained after flying his Model 3 across Coyote Creek Lake in Morgan Hill, California after missing a turn and hitting the far bank. Flynn was the only one in the automobile when the accident happened at around 3.45 in the morning; he managed to exit the partially submerged vehicle unharmed. As he was allegedly “intoxicated and refused to provide any kind of sample for an alcohol test without talking to a lawyer first,” Morgan Hill Police Sgt. Troy Hoefling told Mercury News, he was charged by police with DUI on suspicion of impaired driving.
He was unable to work out a turn. He simply traveled straight, struck a metal sign, then catapulted onto the embankment on the opposite side of the creek, striking a tree there, according to Hoefling. According to the neighborhood police, Flynn initially claimed in a Facebook post that “he had swerved to avoid a deer” and that “the incident had nothing to do with the really strong odor of alcohol coming from him.” The police started pulling the automobile out of the water, which was quite risky given that it had an electric motor and was in a creek. After being brought to the Santa Clara County Jail, Flynn was later let go. Flynn’s employment with Tesla was confirmed by the police.
In order to respond to a query posted on an online forum about the Model 3, Colin Flynn, who is portraying himself as a Tesla associate manager of home-charging installation, utilized a Tesla official email address. Google search results for a Colin Flynn with the same work description who lives in Santa Cruz show the most basic information from a LinkedIn profile that has since been deleted. Comments are requested There was no answer on Tuesday to calls made to Colin Flynn’s listed phone number and Tesla email account. A request for comment from Tesla was not immediately complied with. Police were unable to determine whether the Model 3, Tesla’s mass-market electric car that has been plagued by delays, belonged to Flynn or the business. People cannot refuse to take a driving while intoxicated test.
Test before consulting a lawyer, which resulted in the accusation of impeding police from doing out their duty, according to Hoefling. According to Hoefling, a search warrant was required to get a blood sample from Flynn, and the misdemeanor DUI allegation was tied to an alleged alcohol intoxication. He stated that the blood test’s results were not yet available.
