Attorneys for Heather Lommatzsch, the plaintiff, wrote on Tuesday that she "understood" that the car’s "safety features would ensure the vehicle would stop on its own in the event of an obstacle being present in the path of the Tesla Model S."

In the aftermath of the May 2018 accident, police in South Jordan, Utah, said in a statement that the woman told them that she "was looking at her phone prior to the collision" and that she reportedly "did not brake or take any action to avoid the collision."

She should be sued for being dangerously stupid. Seriously, people like that makes one hope that evolution really separates the wheat from the chaff.
