Tesla Jump Ended In Crash:

Along with the tweet, the LAPD included that they were looking for more information regarding the case, and were ready to provide a $1,000 reward to anyone with information. Many in the community suspected the involvement of Durte Dom due to his social media posts regarding the situation where he claimed responsibility. Additionally, at one point the LAPD called Durte Dom a person of interest due to the public voicing their theory.

Alex Choi took to his Instagram sharing a story that sheds more light into the Dom situation. On Instagram, Choi’s post states: “Durte Dom did not jump the Tesla. Not sure why he’s lying to everyone and saying he did. I was there. I saw everything, and he wasn’t even there”
