Unrelated, but apparently they're doing a screening of FBDO in my area soon, and he's going to be there. Said you can ask him any questions you want about his various movie roles, etc.

My first thought was to go and ask him about his Rivian. 😆

Glad everyone's okay!
Ask if his dad was pissed when he found out

OH MY GOD, ARE THE 2363 WHEELS OKAY?!
My wheels distracted the other driver so much from pure shock, awe and concern, he didn't see the light change. Damned 2363s!

I was in the right of two left hand turn lanes… morning sun was in the oncoming driver’s eyes and he didn’t see the red light. Video tells the rest.

I gotta say, the R1T can take a hit and leave me nearly completely clueless that something happened. Felt more like a pothole than a Ford Transit Connect… 😂

I’m completely drivable, he is totaled. Fortunately he was OK, and I kept checking on him when he didn’t get out of his vehicle for a while.

Bottom line, it’s a beautiful blue-bird warm Oregon day, and everybody is ok. It’s going to be alright.

Sucks, but I applaud your outlook. Hope the Rivian gets well soon.

Glad everyone is okay. In that context, the video is so awesome. The Riv just sort of laughed a little at the challenge. 🤣

Crazy there was an R1S behind you that showed up on the video! But it is Portland I guess so that’s not unexpected.
Right?

OP took one for the team (depending on timing of vehicles coming through that turn, that R1S could've taken that hit!!). And he didn't even stop to make sure OP was ok??! Bad form...

This is a call to all Rivian Bros (and Bro-ettes) to support your fellow Rivian Bros!

EDIT: also, really glad everyone was OK. Crumple Zones and crash mitigation technology FTW!

This is my "sorry, not sorry" thought when buying a 7,000 lb vehicle. If there's a challenge, I rather be prepared for it as much as possible.

If that was me, I'm 99.9% sure that Tesla would have been smoked. I'm too much of a defensive driver to not notice an oncoming vehicle not slowing for a red light. When my light turns green, I always glance to make sure nobody is still coming through the intersection....just a habit that I've always had since I started driving. I guess I just don't trust other drivers.

For the record, the R1S driver had a daughter she had to drop off at school, and came back within 15 minutes and traded information/etc… she’s a verified witness to the crash. Although, she doesn’t know if her vehicle recorded the event from her point of view… her’s is brand new. :)
