I wonder how you ended up over the sidewalk and into the pole? Are you going to blame the steer by wire? How did you hit the drivers front corner if you were steering? I haven't seen a diagram of the accident area but I just don't see how you hit the front left corner with a pole on the right side of the road. To me very suspicious

In the American judicial system it is innocent until proven guilty. That does not work on the world wide web. It is the opposite. With posts like this you are guilty until proven otherwise.

The only way to prove the vehicle caused the accident would be to post some sort of system report from the vehicles ECU that shows a malfunction. Anything short of that...good luck.

I am just stating the facts.

I overcorrected the steering a couple of times on the cybertruck since it’s so different then the other teslas. Maybe it just got out from under you while turning? It is a very large and fast vehicle.

The original post drew heated skepticism because the OP implied that the accident was entirely due to a system malfunction, which is shocking if true. Such claims (and yes, even posts here) are often paraded around the internet as proof of Tesla's failure. (e.g., "OMG! Rust!")

I think we can all agree that the jury is still out on this one, and will remain a mystery until analyzed by the experts with access to the data.

My intention is not to blow this up into anything, there could be nothing wrong with the system. I’m only relaying what I experienced and how I acted in the moment of the situation. Lightbulb memory. The logs will tell us what’s up , I’m also curious and still waiting for logs.

I'm curious with the damage the truck sustained here. Did it drive Ok after this and did the drivers side door still work? How 'bout that hood, is it operable - if you have anything in there would you have been able to get to it? Thanks!

You claim that the brakes didn't work and as a result you crashed a $120K vehicle but you weren't trying to "blow this up into anything".

There being "nothing wrong with the system" is not compatible with what happened, so either your memory of what happened is extremely faulty or the truck's brakes are extremely faulty to the point that pushing down hard on the brakes would not stop the vehicle.

Where is your dashcam footage? My understanding is if a Tesla is involved in any type of crash, it automatically saves the dashcam footage into a folder (called "Events" ? ) that it never overwrites, so the footage is safe. (At least that's what my 2022 MS LR did when I was rear ended last year)
