Kevin Kreider Tesla Accident: He Only Got A Minor Arm Injury
Netflix’s Bling Empire has hooked fans, and the third season is no exception. In episode 7, we see Kevin Kreider involved in a car crash. He crashes his newly purchased Tesla within 10 minutes of buying it.
The accurately-titled Crash And Burn episode shows Kevin visiting his family’s car dealership, all excited to buy his first vehicle in Los Angeles. In the scene, he says, “Getting this new car feels like a new start for me.”
The 39-year-old planned a road trip with Kane to Philadelphia and New York City, hoping to meet with a cousin he connected with on a DNA ancestry site.
He named the white Tesla car after his middle name, Taigen. After sealing the deal and writing it off, Kevin drives away in the vehicle as the car dealer says, “Safe trip, you guys – be careful.” But it turns out to be ironic.
Within 10 minutes, Kevin gets in a pretty serious crash. Fortunately, he suffered no major injuries besides a cut on his arm. “I stopped,” Kevin said. “I can’t help if the other guy speeds and can’t see him.” His co-passenger, Kane, appeared a bit shaken up.
Police officers then arrived at the scene, gave the actor a citation, and towed his car away. The scene ends with Kevin saying: “I feel sick.”
Viewers and fans of the show were shocked by what they saw and quickly took to Twitter to share their opinions.
Some were surprised and thought it must have been a record, while some showed concern for his well-being. Others made lighthearted jokes about the incident.
