Tesla Car in Fatal California Crash Was on Autopilot

(From BBC News)

Electric carmaker Tesla says a vehicle involved in a fatal crash in California was in Autopilot mode, raising further questions about the safety of self-driving technology.

One of the company’s Model X cars crashed into a roadside barrier and caught fire on 23 March.

Tesla says the 38-year-old driver, who died shortly afterwards, had activated Autopilot seconds before the accident.

But they did not say whether the system had detected the concrete barrier.
