An Amazon.com Inc. delivery van slammed Tesla Inc. Model S, crushing the car’s rear and sending Ans Rana, his brother, and father, to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, Bloomberg reports.

In June, Rana prosecuted Amazon holding its algorithms, apps, and devices surrounding its logistics responsible for the mishap.

Rana’s attorney, Scott Harrison, aims to prove that Amazon controls the operation, managing everything. He seeks to establish that Amazon is not just a customer of Harper Logistics, holding it responsible for Rana’s medical bills and a lifetime of diminished earnings.

Rana’s case stands out for the severity of his injuries and his legal team’s argument that Amazon’s technological hold over its delivery partners makes it culpable in the crash.

Rana was in the back seat of his brother’s Tesla when they stopped behind a disabled car just before 9 p.m. on Atlanta’s busy Interstate 75 seconds before the accident. Rana suffered life-changing brain and spinal cord injuries.

The 24-year-old slowly recovered enough to be released from the hospital and now lives with a sister who looks after him.

The March 15 crash dashed his dreams of attending medical school.
