A speeding Tesla ripped through a South Florida neighborhood early Saturday morning.

The aftermath: a damaged house and several parked cars and some trees in the 6500 block of Miramar Parkway, near Southwest 65th Avenue.

According to Sgt. Oscar Mendoza of the Miramar Police Department, the crash happened around 4:20 a.m. The “Tesla drove off the road, hitting several parked cars and a house,” he said.

The force of the crash lifted a pickup truck from where it was parked in front of the house.

The driver was injured and taken to Memorial Regional Hospital. The house, Mendoza said, is currently not safe to occupy. There are no details on how many people were inside the home at the time, but there are no reported injuries except for the driver.

According to WPLG Local 10, neighbors who saw the Tesla speed by on their Ring surveillance cameras described the image as akin to “a flash of light” given how fast the car was driving. Estimates suggest the dark-colored Tesla was going over 100 mph but Miramar police are still investigating the crash.

The scene is clear and not affecting traffic.

Michigan reports highest number of new COVID-19 cases since December

MEREDITH DELISO

Michigan has reported its highest number of new daily COVID-19 cases since early December, as the state is in the midst of a coronavirus surge.

On Saturday, the state health department reported 8,413 new COVID-19 cases. That compares to 1,536 new cases reported one month ago, on March 3.

Cases have been rapidly increasing over the past month, with Michigan now experiencing the "most severe surge of viral spread in the nation," according to the Michigan Health & Hospital Association.

Hospitalizations are also up, particularly among young adults. From March 1 to March 23, hospitalizations increased by 633% for adults ages 30 to 39 and by 800% for adults ages 40 to 49, according to the association.

"I'm very concerned about what we're seeing in the state of Michigan," Dr. Joneigh S. Khaldun, the state's chief medical executive, told "Good Morning America" this week. "We've seen over the past five to six weeks a significant increase in our cases. Our hospitalizations are going up as well. And we are seeing that younger people, ages 10 all the way up through 60, are getting sick, and many of them are also being hospitalized."

Khaldun pointed to COVID-19 fatigue, including a lack of mask compliance, and gatherings as contributing to the increase.

"I think everyone in Michigan really needs to double down right now," she said.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer referred to the surge this week as a "compliance, mobility and variant problem."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state currently ranks second in the nation for the most reported cases of the more transmissible B.1.1.7 variant first discovered in the U.K. As of Wednesday, Michigan has identified 1,468 cases of that variant, according to the state health department.

Both Whitmer and Khaldun stressed the importance of vaccinations at this time.

"We just have to even more so be laser-focused on our vaccination efforts," Khaldun told "GMA."

Starting Monday, COVID-19 vaccination eligibility in the state expands to all residents ages 16 and older.

In an interview with Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ Thursday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, posited the recent surge "very likely" may be due to Michigan opening up too soon.

"I hesitate to criticize anything the governor did because she's really quite a good governor," Fauci told the station. "I think the idea of pulling back prematurely, under pressure, it's understandable why you might want to do that, but the results, I think, are being manifested in what you're seeing in Michigan."

Among its recently loosened restrictions, the state reopened bars and restaurants for indoor dining on Feb. 1 at 25% indoor capacity, then increased it to 50%, with a maximum of 100 people, on March 5. That day, entertainment venues were also allowed to fill up to 50% capacity.

The state's mask order remains in effect, requiring face coverings in public.

California scrambles as maskless crowds flood vacation hotspots

Authorities across southern California are scrambling to contain large holiday crowds on beaches, boardwalks, and piers this weekend, anxious about a possible new surge in Covid-19 cases.

But they face a restive public eager to party in the sun after more than a year of lockdowns, and appear to have few tools at their disposal to enforce mask-wearing and social distancing.

Images of hundreds of largely maskless people crammed on to the Santa Monica pier or huddled around street performers on the Venice boardwalk over the past few days have raised concerns that spring break in the Golden state could spiral out of control, much as it has in Miami Beach, Florida, and trigger a superspreader event.

While the region’s vaccine rollout has significantly ramped up in recent weeks – roughly 50% of adults in Los Angeles county have received at least one shot – local public health officials are warning that it is too soon for the public to let its guard down.

LA’s public health director, Barbara Ferrer, warned people this week not to get “sloppy” by traveling and gathering with others.

That messaging, however, has been muddled by a rapid reduction in pandemic restrictions and by political leaders eager to deliver good news and restart the economy. Some theme parks reopened their doors this week, and outdoor bars and bowling alleys will be allowed to operate in Los Angeles again on Monday.

“Every metric we are following locally is headed in the right direction,” the LA mayor, Eric Garcetti, told reporters in an upbeat news briefing this week, in which he made only brief mention of the need to make spring break “a lower-key event this year”.

Garcetti’s tone contrasted starkly with that of Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), who said she had a sense of “impending doom” amid the uptick in infections in parts of the country.

Local officials in Santa Monica saw similar portents last weekend, when more than 100,000 people visited the city’s celebrated pier without restriction, and street vendors, who are not allowed on the pier, fired up grills on mobile carts, posing a considerable fire risk to the rickety wooden structure.

“If a gas tank exploded on the pier, it would be an inferno and a disaster,” the city council member Phil Brock said. “I was there for 45 minutes on Saturday night and I didn’t see one policeman … It was supposed to be a weekend of maximum enforcement, but there was no enforcement.”

Santa Monica city leaders are now planning to restrict numbers on the pier this weekend by closing off access to new arrivals at 7pm, three hours before closing. They are also planning to deploy half a dozen “health ambassadors” who will remind pier visitors to cover their faces and offer masks free of charge.

City officials will not, however, go back to a system in place last summer when visitors could enter the pier only at a single access point, and numbers were strictly monitored by fire marshals. They are also reluctant to instruct police to hand out tickets for violating city rules on mask-wearing. Those measures are “not our preference”, the deputy city manager, Anuj Gupta, said.

Police in other coastal communities popular with spring breakers – Venice, Manhattan Beach, and Hermosa Beach – have shown a similar reluctance to wade into crowds or break up beach parties, in part because there are few rules governing behavior in public open spaces and elected officials fear the political consequences of appearing heavy-handed.

The beach crowds have, however, infuriated local residents whose children have been unable to return to school in person.

Gupta, the Santa Monica official, said he had seen no evidence of people getting sick after visiting his city’s beaches. But he also acknowledged that if out-of-town visitors fell ill or infected others after returning home, there was no certain way to know about it.

“It’s possible that a certain complacency has set in,” Gupta said. “But it’s also incumbent on folks coming to be aware, and in compliance, with health
