I always tell people that unless you’re talking about an actual computer like a laptop or a mobile phone, analog is best—there are exactly zero reasons why vehicles should be computerized.
Sources say Alan Ruck, the actor who played Connor Roy in “Succession” and Cameron Frye in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” crashed his vehicle into a pizzeria on Halloween night.
But Ruck wasn’t drunk, tired, or distracted, he apparently lost control of his very high-tech Rivian truck.
According to reports, Ruck either did not know how to use the incredibly high-tech features of the car or the features decided to act up on their own—police are not certain which, but these are their theories.
Ruck is fine and there were no other reported injuries as a result of the crash.
ABC 7 Eyewitness News initially reported: “LAPD is investigating a Halloween night crash involving “Succession” actor Alan Ruck. Surveillance video shows the actor’s truck hit the car in front of it and then slam into another car. Moments later, the truck plowed into a pizzeria.

Daily Caller explained:
The electric truck features three all-wheel drive systems; Dual Motor, Performance Dual-Motor, and Quad-Moto.
Depending on which setting and driving mode is selected, the powerful truck can quickly lurch forward.

Daily Mail provided more details:
According to law enforcement sources, responding police officers bought Ruck’s claims that he had no idea what led him to hit the popular pizza spot.
Instead, they think the newness and potentially confusing features of the brand-new truck may have contributed to the incident.
