Youch! That doesn't look pretty! I hope the casual appearance of the officer and everyone else standing there means that nobody was hurt.

Now that I see the rest of the pics, it looks like only the R1T and two parked cars involved. Hopefully, both parked cars were empty

Again, I hope all the folks are OK. 🤞

That looks like some seriously bad driving... but it looks like it fared well, at least better than the Ford did.

Seems like it ran off the road, onto the grass , through the bushes and into a parking lot. Hit an S-class Mercedes

So no one is questioning if there was another explanation? Like, maybe they were runoff the road by another vehicle? 🤷🏻‍♂️

At least it didn’t burst into flames…
Actually compared to the Edge it looks like the R1T took the hit well.

Hope it is an explainable driver error. Would hate to see this cause delays for test drives and deliveries after so much progress this month so they can do an RCA.....

You can see that it went over the grass, through the bush then smoked the explorer that was occupying the spot (the front hood of the white explorer is mangled) maybe they were racing for the spot and rivian went for the road less traveled with its magic carpet like suspension.. Bet the driver didn't feel a thing!
Ps Jealous of the cop that gets to check it out, wish a rivian would hit my vehicle 😉

How heavy does a car have to be to inflict that much damage to other cars while only incurring minor damage to itself?
