Tesla crashed into a tree on autopilot, killing two

Two men were killed after a Tesla car, which was in autopilot mode, crashed into a tree north of Houston on Saturday evening.

After extinguishing the fire, authorities found two passengers in the car, one in the front passenger seat and the other on the back couch of Tesla. “There was no one in the driver’s seat,” confirmed Sergeant Cinthya Umanzor of Harris County 4th Police Station.

The 2019 Tesla Model S moved at high speed, at one point it did not fit into the turn and left the roadway, crashing into a tree, after which it caught fire, says the local television company KHOU-TV. Tesla and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration did not respond to a request for comment.

The crash comes amid growing focus on Tesla’s semi-automatic driving system following recent accidents, as well as preparations to launch updated software for full autonomous driving to more customers.

The U.S. Auto Safety Agency said in March that it had launched 27 investigations into Tesla car accidents. At least three of these accidents are recent.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in January that Tesla’s vehicles will be able to move independently with greater safety than human control this year.
