Tesla Model Y owner files formal complaint: ‘The car by itself took control’

An anonymous owner of a 2021 Tesla Model Y has filed a complaint at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), reporting their vehicle crashed while the Full Self-Driving Beta was engaged.

The accident took place on November 3, somewhere in Brea, California. Fortunately, there were no injuries or fatalities, but disturbingly enough, the owner blames the FSD for causing the crash. Specifically, the car kept entering the wrong lane and didn’t respond to driver input.

This is the driver’s statement on NHTSA’s official page:

The Vehicle was in FSD Beta mode and while taking a left turn the car went into the wrong lane and I was hit by another driver in the lane next to my lane.

The car gave an alert 1/2 way through the turn so I tried to turn the wheel to avoid it from going into the wrong lane but the car by itself took control and forced itself into the incorrect lane creating an unsafe maneuver putting everyone involved at risk. Car is severely damaged on the driver side.
