The total damage between the two cars was estimated at €10,000 ($10,673) with most of the costs coming from the Passat’s repair bill given that it slammed into the guardrail multiple times. Worth it, right? Wait though, because this gets better. In case you needed an uplifting reason to pass on a good deed for the day, check Elon Musk’s Twitter
because the Tesla CEO saw the news and congratulated the hero, saying, “Congrats to the Tesla owner who sacrificed damage to his own car to bring a car with an unconscious driver safely to a stop!” Of course he had to follow that up with a gratuitous CEO power move to rial up the Tesla community, which he did by offering to fix the damaged Tesla for free and expediting the repairs.
