Fatal Tesla Model 3 Crash into Home on Sunnyridge Road, Rolling Hills

 Fatal Tesla Model 3 Crash into Home on Sunnyridge Road, Rolling HillsWoman Killed in Solo Tesla Crash on Sunnyridge Road

ROLLING HILLS, Calif. (August 30, 2022) —  A driver in a Tesla Model 3 died when her car crashed into a pole and a home on Sunnyridge Road in Rolling Hills.

The crash occurred about 11:40 a.m. on August 30th in the 27000 block of Sunnyridge Road, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The vehicle apparently sheared off a telephone pole prior to slamming into a residence.

The California Highway Patrol sent police officers to the scene to help the woman later identified on the coroner website as Tuba Ghannadi, 70.

Also, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded, but sadly Tuba Ghannadi died at the scene.

Tesla Model 3 Autopilot Crashes

Investigators will work on the Sunnyridge Road case and determine what led up to the crash. It’s currently unknown if Tesla Autopilot was a factor.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began looking into the Autopilot feature on Tesla vehicles back in August 2021. The decision came after the federal safety agency learned there were more and more crashes involving vehicles using the Autopilot feature. Some of these vehicles involved parked vehicles and emergency vehicles.

NHTSA investigators want to get to the bottom of what is causing these collisions. Some 830,000 Teslas from the model years 2014 to 2022 for the Model 3, Model Y, Model S, and Model X vehicles are included in the investigation. The federal agency has requested data from Tesla and 12 other automakers whose vehicles are equipped with this type of active driving assistance system.

Indeed, the Autopilot system has been a factor in several deadly crashes over the years including one in 2019 that killed two people in California. A Tesla driver reportedly had Autopilot on when the vehicle drove through a red traffic light and crashed into a car occupied by two people. Both of them died in the collision. Authorities arrested the driver and charged the person with two counts of vehicular manslaughter in that case.

Finally, the investigation is aware of around 35 collisions where Autopilot was engaged. Nine of those collisions involved 14 fatalities.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
