Tesla Model X crashes into building at high speed, owner claims it accelerated on its own I look forward to hearing from Tesla regarding what the vehicle logs show at the time of this accident. There are several possible explanations. One possible explanation is pedal confusion on the part of the driver. There are other possibilities of course, including the cars' software failed to operate correctly. Fortunately, the vehicle logs will shed light on this incident. From the article: "In his post just hours after the accident, he made some odd statements, including that Tesla should immediately stop Model X deliveries and he prompted anyone with a similar experience to contact him directly." I do not necessarily find those statements "odd". If the driver believes the car accelerated on its own, contrary to his actions, then of course he would say those things.
