As family of Tesla driver killed in fiery Model X crash prepares to sue, Tesla blames the driver
Late last month, a Model X cruising along a California highway crashed into a highway divide whereupon the vehicle's battery pack caught on fire and engulfed the Model X in flames. Tragically, the driver of the Model X -- Walter Huang -- did not survive the accident.
A subsequent investigation into the incident revealed that Tesla's Autopilot feature was engaged at the time of the crash. What's more, Tesla, upon examining the car's logs, revealed that the Model X issued a number of hands-on warning signals to Huang in the seconds preceding the crash.
