On this day, 7/20/2020, I was nearly killed in my 2014 Mercedes CLA250 4matic. I was driving on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway at 4:00am. The motor stalled and the car came to a stop in the left lane. There were no shoulders. I attempted to get the car restarted but all I got were flashing dashboard lights. I attempted to put up a warning triangle but the traffic was moving too quickly for me to safely do that. I sat in my car and buckled my seat belt.

Within moments, a Toyota with TLC plates smashed into my car sending me into the barrier. The rear of the car was broken and deformed. The front of the car is okay, but the appearance of the rear is such that I believe I lost my car.

I read online that this model has a stalling problem and that others have gone through this. I was one of the unlucky owners and I will be suing. This car's airbags did not deploy and I am injured and being treated in a hospital.

Update from Mar 19, 2021: Mercedes never responded to my correspondence to them. They don't care and in recent years, they accuse drivers of faults with their cars.

Update from Oct 14, 2021: I have to sue the TLC driver. What a mess!
