The accident happened when a Tesla model S veered off the road and struck a tree. The car caught fire and firefighters spent hours putting out the blaze. It took 23,000 gallons of water to extinguish the flames. 

Two men, a passenger in the front and in the back, were found dead at the scene. They were identified as Dr. William Varner and 68-year-old Everette Talbot.
