According to the statement, the Tesla thief - 26-year-old Joshua MichaelFlotof Inglewood, California - died on Monday, July 7, from the injuries he had sustained in the high-speed crash which hurt at least seven other people too.
Going by the theft- and crash-related details shared by the Los Angeles Police Department on Wednesday, Flotstole the car from Tesla's service center in west Los Angeles on July 4 morning. After outrunning police, he crashed at high speed into vehicles on La Brea Avenue in West Hollywood.
Flot was reportedly driving the stolen Model S sedan at such a high speed that after the car crashed into vehicles, it also hit a steel pole and split in two. The high-speed collisions caused a fire in the car; and the injuries that Flot sustained in the crash led to his death.
