Paris taxi company G7 has suspended the use of Tesla Model 3 cars in its fleet after a fatal accident involving one of the vehicles over the weekend. This was first reported by Reuters.
G7 Deputy Chief Executive Yann Ricordel said an off-duty taxi driver was taking his family to a restaurant when the accident happened on Saturday evening.
The accident killed one person, two sources told Reuters on Tuesday.
According to French media reports, the car hit a cyclist and three pedestrians before crashing into a van, and seven people were seriously injured.
G7 said it would suspend the use of 37 Tesla Model 3 cars in its fleet until a police investigation into the case is completed.
This could be bad news for the already struggling Tesla Stock.
