SUDBURY (CBS) – A Tesla crashed into an orthodontist’s office in Sudbury Thursday morning, but no one was seriously hurt.
The car slammed into Sudbury Orthodontics on Concord Road just after 9 a.m. and went deep inside the building.
Sudbury Police Chief Scott Nix told WBZ-TV it was the result of “operator error” because the driver was “unfamiliar with the vehicle operation.”
The two people in the Tesla were uninjured but were trapped due to falling debris. A person who had been inside the building at the time was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
The expensive electric cars have an autopilot option but Nix said this one was “not self-driving that we are aware of at this time.”
The damage to the building left Sudbury Orthodontics with no phone service and no access to its software.
