NTSB opens investigation into another fatal Tesla crash

Lauderdale which claimed the lives of two teens has drawn the interest of the National Transportation Safety Board. The team of four is expected to arrive in Florida Wednesday evening.

Tesla has denied that its autopilot system was at fault for a vehicle crash which claimed the lives of two Florida teenagers. Autopilot, a form of advanced cruise control that has come under scrutiny after two crashes this year, was not engaged when the Model S vehicle drove off the road and hit a concrete wall, catching fire, the company said, adding it had not yet seen logs from the crash.

Tesla announced that it was working with authorities to establish the facts of the fatal auto crash. A second passenger was taken to hospital. "It was burning all the way across until it hit the lamp post". "Serious crashes like this can result in fire regardless of the type of auto, and Tesla's billions of miles of actual driving data shows that a gas auto in the United States is five times more likely to experience a fire than a Tesla vehicle".

The NTSB said their primary focus will be "on emergency response in relation to the electric vehicle battery fire, including fire department activities and towing operations".

Tesla also reported that the vehicle's autopilot function was active at the time of the crash.

"The goal of these investigations is to understand the impact of these emerging transportation technologies when they are part of a transportation accident", he said. Tesla's billions of miles of actual driving data shows that a gas auto in the United States is five times more likely to experience a fire than a Tesla vehicle. In March, a Tesla Model X crashed into a highway barrier in Mountain View, California, killing its 38-year-old driver. Two weeks later, in an effort to avoid further fires, the NTSB and Tesla performed a battery draw down to fully de-energize it, Diaz wrote in the memo. The NTSB said it revoked it, while Tesla said it voluntarily chose to remove itself from the party agreement.

Mr Obama, whose administration negotiated the deal, called Mr Trump's action "misguided". He predicted Iran would choose to negotiate eventually, or face consequences.

"The family who owned the auto has been a close friend of Tesla for many years, and this hits us particularly hard".

Tesla said late Wednesday it had not retrieved electronic logs from the vehicle, but the high rate of speed indicated the autopilot feature was not engaged. Serious high-speed collisions can result in a fire, regardless of the type of auto.
