As the man fell to the ground on a pedestrian island, an incident unfolded when a Tesla electric vehicle made a right turn onto Shanghai Street, striking the unconscious victim. Sustaining head injuries, the man remained in a state of unconsciousness until the arrival of paramedics, who promptly transported him to the hospital for treatment.

Law enforcement officers arrived at the scene to conduct an investigation. They subjected the female driver to a breathalyser test, measuring her blood alcohol content at 13 micrograms, which was within the legal limit.
