Technical failure or human error?
If, at first glance, one can think of a technical incident having caused this big exit from the road, the origin of the facts would be somewhat different. The driver, taken to hospital in “stable condition”, later stated that the braking system of his Tesla had failed him. We remember that similar reasons were mentioned during the accident in Paris.
But the man would have been taken in flagrant speeding by several witnesses. They told authorities that the owner of the Model 3 had attempted to switch to orange lightincreasing its speed to almost 110 km/h but without being able to turn or slow down.
More fear than harm
If its causes will have to be determined with precision, this impressive accident fortunately did no injuries. The convention center was hosting several events at the same time, including a junior women’s volleyball championship.
