Tesla crashes into wall outside Narwee news agency in Sydney despite anti-collision technology


You can’t park there! Tesla was involved in an embarrassing parking accident despite all its anti-collision technology

  • Sydney locals mocked failed park
  • Teslas have a storied history of accidents

A Tesla crashing into a brick wall has many wondering if the car’s high-tech parking sensors or anti-collision mechanisms were working when the embarrassing incident occurred.

The car was photographed on top of the wall outside a Narwee kiosk in western Sydney over the weekend, leaving passers-by with stitches.

The car appeared to have gone completely up the sidewalk before crashing into the red brick wall, partially destroying a lawn and leaving parts of its undercarriage in the street behind it.

Since Tesla launched its Model 3 series, all cars now feature anti-collision software that includes full-body sensors and automatic braking.

Although many conceded that the white Tesla driver was likely to blame for the botched parking attempt, the Elon Musk-owned brand has a history of freak accidents.

The anti-collision sensors aim to prevent accidents with warnings sent to the driver when an impact is imminent, but they clearly did not help the driver on this occasion.

Online users jumped on Tesla’s embrace of electricity to power its cars and the company’s greener outlook to mock the driver.

“I just wanted to hug a tree,” one joked.

Did they get accused? another wrote.

Despite Tesla’s position as a leading car brand, its innovations in computer-assisted driving have raised skepticism about safety in the past.

In April 2022, a Tesla with its self-driving mode activated entered a US airport and crashed into a $3 million private jet.

The moment was caught on CCTV, where the persistent Tesla continued to drive even after getting stuck under the tail of the plane.

Before the Tesla stalled the plane, it was looking straight ahead.

After impact, the jet rotates almost 180 degrees.

A driverless Tesla in the US was caught on CCTV crashing into a $3 million plane (pictured), failing to stop even after becoming lodged under the plane.

Although the car’s driverless feature was not confirmed to be involved in the wild parking attempt at Narwee, a reputation for mishaps has created a stigma for the brand.

A 2022 report Revealed between July 2021 and July 2022, 70 percent of accidents involving advanced driver assistance systems involved at least one Tesla.

Of the 392 reported accidents, from 12 manufacturers, as of July 2021, Tesla vehicles accounted for 273, or 69.6 percent.
