Tesla Model S on Autopilot Hits Police SUV

tesla autopilot crash

Just weeks after a driver was caught relaxing in the passenger’s seat while his Tesla Model S hurtled down the road on Autopilot, another Tesla owner narrowly avoided a tragedy. A Tesla Model S driver in Laguna Beach crashed into a parked police SUV while relying on the Autopilot feature.

Fortunately, the police SUV was empty and the driver in question only sustained minor injuries. At the moment, what the driver was doing at the moment of the accident is not public knowledge, but Autopilot usually issues plenty of warnings beforehand. Tesla even warns drivers never to take their hands off the wheel.

After a minute of not detecting a driver’s hands on the steering wheel, Autopilot will switch off for the rest of the ride and if the situation happens again, the car will pull itself to a stop.

“Tesla has always been clear that Autopilot doesn’t make the car impervious to all accidents,” reiterated Tesla for Reuters.
