Los Angeles, US - A Tesla car driven by British TV director Michael Morris burst into flames in Los Angeles, his US actress wife has said.
Mary McCormack tweeted a dramatic video of the incident earlier this week.
"No accident, out of the blue, in traffic on Santa Monica Blvd. Thank you to the kind couple who flagged him down and told him to pull over," she wrote.
No-one was injured. Tesla said it was investigating "an extraordinary unusual occurrence", ABC News reports.
Tesla says its electric vehicles are less likely to catch fire than fuel-powered cars.
In her tweet, West Wing actress McCormack also wrote: "And thank god my three little girls weren't in the car with him (her husband)."(FA)
