Two people were killed in a crash with Tesla on Saturday in the US state of Texas. Self-driving activity may have been enabled and no one was in the driver’s seat, officials said Sunday.
According to police, the 2019 Tesla S model flew very fast from the corner and then caught fire after colliding with a tree.
At the first hearing the two were seated in the passenger seat and the back seat. The autopilot, also known as the function, is still being investigated as to whether the car was active.
The accident comes at an unfortunate time, with full self-driving car software planned to be available to more customers soon. Tesla is developing this technology as a safe way to drive.
There have been several accidents with Teslas recently in the United States. There are currently 27 inquiries regarding the car brand in the country. The American company of multi-billionaire Elon Musk was not available for comment Sunday.
In January, the Tesla CEO said he hoped the automated pilot would drive more reliably in a few years than a driver. The company insists that the driver still have his hands on the wheel to take control if necessary.
