On June 20, 2020, a 2017 Tesla Model S sedan on autopilot mode suddenly began to accelerate on its own as it headed toward a highway offramp. The vehicle then ran off the road and crashed into a tree. According to a lawsuit filed by the driver, the driver suffered catastrophic injuries, including shattered and fractured vertebrae and chest pain. Unfortunately, this accident case isn't an isolated incident regarding the Tesla vehicles' autopilot feature. According to other claims, many car crashes and "perhaps more than 20 deaths are attributable" to Tesla's autopilot system, noting several instances in which those Tesla drivers had been killed when the system was engaged.
