Boca Tesla Test Drive Leaves Man Injured, Lawsuit Filed


BOCA RATON, FL ( — A Boca Raton man and his wife are suing Tesla, claiming a test drive overseen by an employee of the company’s Boca Raton Town Center Mall store left the man critically injured.

According to the suit, which you can read below, Paul Stile was with a Tesla employee engaged in a test drive on Butts Road near the mall when the driver — allegedly — engaged in a series of high speed/sudden stop maneuvers. The gravitational force of the car play, according to the suit, left Mr. Stiles injured. He and his wife Catherine filed suit against Tesla Florida in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

It is unclear from the initial complaint if the Tesla suffered an ‘auto pilot” malfunction, or if the Tesla employee went rogue.
