Auto-Pilot Enabled Tesla Crashes Into Tree At 100 MPH Killing Driver
Auto-pilot sounds cool until…
A motorist has been killed in Holland after the self-driving Tesla car he was travelling in smashed into a tree at 100 mph.
However, the company has insisted the crash happened after the driver switched off the auto-pilot function.
The Model S sedan had been driven by the man, aged 54, near the eastern Dutch town of Baarn, when the car ploughed into the tree.
It is believed it took firefighters several hours to recover his body as they feared they would be electrocuted.
However, in a statement by Tesla Netherlands sent to AFP, the company says the car’s logs show the auto pilot was not activated.
R.I.P. to the driver. We get the feeling this story will have a lot of Tesla owners going old school.
