Tesla Model S crashes into a fire truck, driver blames ‘Autopilot’
Tesla's vaunted Autopilot feature may have been the cause of an accident in Culver City, California earlier this week, according to a report from by CBS Los Angeles. From what we've been able to gather thus far, a Model S was cruising down the 405 freeway at about 65 mph whereupon it crashed into the back of a firetruck which was attending to a different matter on the road. The driver of the Model S reportedly told authorities that the car was in Autopilot mode at the time of the incident. Thankfully, and somewhat surprisingly, the driver of the crash emerged unscathed.
