On Sunday, the Paris taxi driver of a Tesla Model 3 filed a lawsuit against Tesla as it “put the lives of others in danger”. It was stated by the driver’s lawyer, Sarah Saldmann. Saying that the client filed a case with public prosecutors in Versalis.
The off-duty taxi driver’s Tesla plowed through metal posts, a row of pay-to-ride bicycles, and a recycling bin full of glass, hitting pedestrians and a van before finally coming to a halt, witnesses said of the accident. The taxi driver, who has not been named, told police after the accident that the car had accelerated on its own and that he was unable to activate the brakes. Saldmann did not say anything when asked if the complaint had been made on the basis of the still-unpublished initial conclusions from investigators.
