Tesla Model S first got into a fatal accident

Tesla Model S first got into a fatal accident Tesla reported an incident that resulted in a fatal accident in a semi-automatic Tesla Model S driver. The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is currently investigating the causes of accidents. Any details about the fatal collision that occurred on June 7 in Florida, such as the speed of both vehicles, whether the Tesla driver kept his hands on the steering wheel, whether he controlled the road, is unknown. According to the Tesla manual, Model S was on the highway when an adjacent perpendicular road drove a cargo trailer blocking the highway. Neither the autopilot system, nor the driver himself, recognized or noticed the danger. Presumably, this contributed to the white bodywork against a brightly lit sky. As a result, the electric car, without braking and without avoiding a collision, drove under the trailer at full speed and the impact of the trailer body fell on the windshield. It is worth noting that Tesla autopilot mode is still in beta testing and is turned off by default. The user can independently make a decision and include it at his own risk. However, the manufacturer in its recommendations recalls that the driver, despite all the advantages of the autopilot, is obliged to keep his hands on the steering wheel and control the traffic situation in order to take control of the vehicle in a controversial or unexpected situation. The American driver, who died in an accident, is Joshua Brown who was an active member of the Tesla forum on Reddit. Previously, he published a video on the resource in which his electric car avoided a collision in automatic control mode. Later, Elon Musk posted this video on his Twitter. Tesla expressed condolences to the relatives of the deceased. However, statements appear in the press according to which developers do not see the fault of the system in an accident. Who will be found guilty of the incident will show the results of the investigation.
