Airstream involved in accident in Detroit

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2017/06/08/truck-hits-pedestrians-outside-shinola/102648624/

Sad story. Not sure what happened, but wouldn't take mine down there. Wasn't Urban Air there this weekend?

The article does not indicate that the Airstream was involved in the accident, only that the Tesla employees were not injured. Here is the unit IMO:

The tour may be coming to you so check out the interactive map.

Additional coverage with a video showing the parked AS:

Have a good weekend.

Stay safe!

"Airstream involved in accident in Detroit"

Rather misleading headline but still bad thing to happen. Using vehicles to purposely kill and injure are becoming all too common.

No, there was no AS involvement and I doubt the neighborhood really cares to have you visit.

Unfortunately there was at least one fatality, and some were seriously injured.

I believe the Airstream was hit by the truck. At least that was reported in an early story.

I'm down there often actually, but wouldn't take the AS.

Hi

The basic "person looses control of a vehicle" is something that can happen anywhere. That includes with or without the presence of booze or drugs.
