After a Model X self-driving car crashed into five police officers, a group of Texas law enforcement officers sued Tesla.

The lawsuit represents the automaker's latest legal problem, and at the time, it was trying to offer driver assistance programs to more customers.

Tesla must be retested due to multiple collisions between autonomous driving and emergency vehicles.

The accident occurred on February 27, 2021 in the small town of Splendora in eastern Montgomery County.

According to the lawsuit, the Model X encountered multiple police officers while parking on Eastex Highway in Texas. During that time, it was said that they were all seriously injured.

The plaintiff asserted that the company's known design and manufacturing defects were responsible for the collision and that the company was not aware of these defects and did not intend to repair them.

They argued that the autopilot did not recognize the officer's car and in no way avoided danger or warned of a collision.

Prosecutors also noted that this was not a single accident and that there were at least 12 other accidents involving Tesla drones.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating 12 incidents in which owners of vehicles using the company's self-driving features collided with parked emergency vehicles. 17 people were injured and one person died.

The lawsuit cited several tweets from Elon Musk, the company's CEO, who commented on the robotics-related incidents. Or Tesla's owners misused the system to prove that the company was aware of these defects but did not remember them or could not fix them.

The lawsuit stated that the company apparently refused to provide additional warranties or repair issues with the autopilot system, indicating a lack of oversight and oversight of the autopilot system. The company made a conscious decision not to solve these issues. She has to take responsibility, especially if she understands in detail the dangers of robotic systems.

Officials claim compensation for injuries and permanent disabilities. The lawsuit resulted in more than $1 million in damages, with a maximum of $20 million in damages.

Tesla has filed lawsuits against autopilot accidents in the past. She was sued in 2019 by the family of a man who died in a car accident while using the robot's manual.

earlier this year. The company is run by the family of a young man who died in 2018. This was after his Model X crashed while working on autopilot.
