Frances Adams, James Adams Killed in Tesla Accident in Conroe, TX

According to currently available information, 84-year-old Frances Adams and 87-year-old James Adams were both in a Tesla Model 3 traveling through the hospital's parking garage. For reasons still not confirmed to the public, the Tesla apparently accelerated forward, resulting in the vehicle crashed head-on into a wall. The vehicle then apparently continued off to the side where it hit several parked vehicles.

Both Frances and James Adams were pronounced deceased following transport to a hospital, officials said. Right now, additional details are unavailable.

This comes as quite a shock because just recently I read about a fatal crash involving a mom and her daughter where their Tesla also accelerated for unknown reasons. Nothing has been confirmed there either, but the woman's husband claims he was informed his wife's vehicle suddenly went from 50 MPH to 86 MPH and crashed off-road, and he says his wife was an extremely careful driver.

For both that story and this story, I would caution folks that defects are relatively rare. However, they absolutely are not to be ruled out unless there's a proper investigation from experienced accident reconstructionists who can adequately rule out that sort of thing. What those investigations might reveal here isn't for me to say, but I can't help being concerned learning about two strangely similar crashes in such a short time frame.
