A Tesla software engineer was injured when a malfunctioning robot assaulted him on the floor of the carmaker’s Texas factory. The incident occurred in 2021, but The Information only revealed it last month.

According to witnesses, the engineer was writing software that operates robots at Tesla’s Austin, Texas factory. Two of the robots, which cut aluminium car parts, were safely disabled so that the engineers could work on them.

However, a third robot was mistakenly left active. According to two witnesses, the robot pushed the engineer to the ground and buried its claws into his arms and back.

The Tesla software engineer was injured by the robot attack. It finally stopped when another floor worker pressed the emergency stop button, allowing the software engineer to escape the machine’s hold. According to one eyewitness, he left a trail of blood behind him as he escaped the robot.

The Information received a copy of an injury report issued to federal regulators and Travis County health officials.

According to the report, the engineer received a “laceration, cut, or open wound” on his left hand. His injuries was not serious enough for him to miss work.

Tesla declined to comment for this article. This is far from an isolated occurrence for the electric vehicle company. According to injury records provided to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration last year, one out of every twenty workers at Tesla’s Texas production was injured in some way.
