LOS GATOS (CBS SF) — A Tesla plowed through the front door of a Starbucks coffee shop in Los Gatos Thursday afternoon.

It happened at the Starbucks located in a strip mall at 624 Blossom Hill Road in Los Gatos just after 4:00 p.m. Thursday.

The car drove into the store which was open at the time and stopped just short of the counter.

There was no one hurt, according to the Santa Clara County Fire Department. Firefighters were trying to reinforce the structure of the building after the car was removed shortly before 6:00 p.m.

The vehicle was not on auto-pilot at the time, police told KPIX reporter Maria Medina.

In March, a Tesla on autopilot crashed along U.S. Highway 101 in Mountain View after hitting the median barrier and bursting into flames.

  1. Teslas have about 10 times as many of these unintended acceleration incidents as other makes of cars. Only a matter of time before someone gets killed.
    Bad design of pedal placement, over-dependence on one foot driving. Even an accidental brush of the stalk causes it to resume the set cruise speed with max acceleration.
    And WHY doesn’t the supposed Automatic Emergency Braking work????
    Can’t it see a brick wall?

    1. Actually Keef, you are significantly mistaken. Do your research first.

      1. Oh believe me I HAVE done my research.
        The Tesla is UNSAFE AT ANY VOLTAGE
