June 25 (UPI) — A “repair contract” for a suspected out-of-control accident involving a Tesla Model 3 in Jiangxi a week ago has been revealed online, setting out the official investigation into the accident. Model 3 suspected out-of-control accident occurred at 14:00 on June 16, located in Nanchang Jiangnan Avenue, after the background to retrieve driving data and on-site investigation, found the following four points:
1, in the first few minutes before the accident, there is a signal to press the accelerator pedal, but no signal to depress the brake pedal;
2, after the site survey, the accident section did not see brake marks;
3, the system detected the collision of the speed of 112 km/h;
4, the system detected a collision, there is a signal to press the accelerator pedal, no signal to press the brake pedal.
It’s worth noting that Tesla officials did not respond to the accident report as of the time it was released, so it’s not clear if this is the final report on the accident, but we can find some clues.
According to previous news, the owner of the car, Mr. Chen, said that before the incident, the car in the driving state suddenly automatically accelerated to 127 km/h, he braked unresponsive, all the way to avoid 40 or 50 cars, and finally hit the dirt heap at the end of the road, the car stopped and caught fire.
However, according to the current reports, the out-of-control Model 3 did not have a signal to press the brake pedal before the accident, and there was a signal to press the accelerator pedal, which clearly contradicts the owner’s claim.
It is important to note that there is still uncertainty about the incident report and we will continue to be concerned about this matter.
