Mary Lou Seelandt, 66, and Karl Seelandt, 67, from Lompoc in California, died on July 6, 2022 after visiting relatives in Georgia to celebrate their granddaughter’s first birthday.
Mary Lou was behind the wheel of the couple’s 2015 Tesla Model S when she left the southbound Interstate 75 shortly before 2pm to enter the Paynes Prairie Rest Area.
As the exit split into two lanes, one for cars and another for larger vehicles, the Tesla entered the truck lot and careered into the back of a parked Walmart semi.
A shocking photo released by Florida Highway Patrol shows the front of the Tesla was totally crushed by the collision, with the car trapped beneath the truck’s rear end.

The suit does not specify what part of the Tesla was defective but notes the car was fitted with ‘crash avoidance and crash mitigation features’, Mercury News reported.
Mary Lou was driving the car ‘as intended and designed’, the suit added.
A fundraiser launched on behalf of Michael Seelandt, the couple’s son, said the couple were en-route to Florida as part of a cross-country vacation when the crash happened.
The page added: ‘It was my Daughter Gracie’s 1st Birthday. They had just driven from California to our house in Georgia.
‘They loved every minute of the eight days they spent with their granddaughter and us. We are heartbroken that they were not allowed more time as grandparents.
‘However we are grateful that they were able to experience grandparenthood. Gracie is one of the lights keeping us going right now.’
The GoFundMe page conclude with the touching note: ‘We turn to God at this time and believe that they have just brightened Heavens party with wine and charcuterie.’
The crash was probed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The incident adds to a list of crashes by Teslas which are being probed by the NHTS.
A probe is also underway into a crash in northern California on February 18, when a Tesla crashed into a firetruck, killing the driver and critically injuring a passenger.
What is the ‘Nullo’ castration cult? Inside the Democrats horrifying world of ‘genital nullification’ that was inspired by artist who cut off his own penis and testicles and served them to the highest bidder
Many ‘Nullos’ opt for a ‘smoothie’, a procedure that leaves them with a fully smooth groin, and more than half these people use amateur ‘cutters’ – often doctors or vets – or do it themselves. There are an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 voluntary ‘Nullos’ worldwide, though the true number is unknown. Astonishingly, two thirds never tell anyone they have no genitalia, including their families, a 2014 academic study found.
Democrats want young boys to cut off their penises. This is GREAT, fir single straight guys because they will have less competition for chicks at the bars.
