[YesAuto New Energy] Last week, a Tesla Model 3 crashed into a roadside mound at high speed in Jiangxi Province and turned over and caught fire. The owner was injured in this accident. Fortunately, there was no life-threatening accident. In an interview with the media, the car owner stated that the car was out of control before the accident and the brake pedal did not respond. Therefore, the car owner hit the roadside mound after trying his best to avoid “about forty or fifty cars”. Recently, a domestic media exposed a video of a driving recorder, which recorded part of the accident.
From the exposed video (due to copyright reasons, we are unable to reprint the video, please understand), we can see a blue Tesla Model 3 crossing the yellow line at a very fast speed, coming to the retrograde lane and overtaking the car in front. And almost collided with the opposing video car. From this video, we can see that the vehicle in the accident was indeed driving at a higher speed before the impact and made a move to dodge the vehicle on the road. According to the owner, he has more than 20 years of driving experience. When he stepped on the brake pedal, the vehicle did not respond and the speed increased to 127km/h. Therefore, the owner had to control the steering wheel to avoid the road vehicle and eventually crashed into the mound, causing the vehicle to catch fire.
It is worth noting that a recording of a suspected Tesla employee was also exposed in the video. The other party said: “What we judged is that there is no brake record (the accident vehicle before the accident).” It also said that the acceleration pedal was detected. Large opening. Whether this car was caused by the accident caused by the driver's mistakenly stepping on the accelerator pedal, or the car was out of control and speeding up on its own, it still needs to be further verified by relevant departments, and Autohome will continue to follow up.
