Tesla Model X crashes into Toyota likely because of floor mats

August 10, 2019,  Calle de la Candelaria in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico 

A Toyota pickup truck was damaged when a Tesla crashed into it while not being on auto-pilot.

Thankfully, a woman standing by the Toyota was unharmed, as was a pedestrian on the other side of the road. The latter got really lucky, because that sliding Model X missed him by a hair. It’s a good thing that he had time to react and take a couple of steps back, otherwise he could have gotten badly hurt – the driver of the Tesla may have helped too, turning the wheel in time.

The pedal could’ve gotten stuck underneath the floor mat, authorities say.
