The family of the driver claims he died because he couldn't get the door open after a crash when the car caught on fire.
A wrongful death lawsuit was filed in state court in Broward County, Florida, on October 10 claims that Awan was burned beyond recognition "because the Model S has inaccessible door handles, no other way to open the doors, and an unreasonably dangerous fire risk." According to the Bloomberg news service, the suit says the cause of death was smoke inhalation and that Awan did not have any internal injuries or broken bones. The man's family is reportedly seeking more than $15,000 in damages.
