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.
