Actor Son Ji-chang is suing U.S. electric carmaker Tesla claiming that his Model X suddenly accelerated during parking and crashed through the garage and into the actor's living room.
Son and a passenger were injured due to the crash.
Son, who lives in California, the U.S., said on his Facebook page on Sunday that the accident took place on Sept. 10 last year as he was trying to park his Model X with his son in the passenger seat.
Son moved to the U.S. some two years ago with his actress wife Oh Yun-soo so their children can go to school there.
He also charges Tesla with blaming the accident on him and accusing him of trying to swindle the firm out of compensation.
The Model X 75D he drove costs US$110,000.
