Another one

Another Tesla car operating in autopilot mode has been involved in a crash this year.

The driver of the Model S crashed into an unoccupied, parked police cruiser in California yesterday. Fortunately no one was in the patrol car when the collision took place.

 The car’s driver, who has suffered minor injuries, told officers that he had engaged the car’s partial self-driving system, called Autopilot. “He told us in his own statement he was in driver-assisted mode,” police added.

Meanwhile, a Tesla spokeswoman has responsed to media saying: “When using Autopilot, drivers are continuously reminded of their responsibility to keep their hands on the wheel and maintain control of the vehicle at all times.

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