Model X owner sues Tesla after crashing into his living room

Model X owner, Ji Chang Son, filed suit against Tesla on Friday claiming his electric SUV accelerated on its own and crashed while he was attempting to park the vehicle into his garage, injuring the driver and passenger.

The lawsuit filed at the U.S. District Court in the Central District of California claims that the owner’s Model X “spontaneously began to accelerate at full power” when the driver was pulling into his home garage, and resulted in the two-and-a-half ton SUV crashing through a wall and into the living room.
