Two Dead in Tesla Crash in Texas Which was Believed to be Driverless

Two men died following a Tesla automobile, which was thought to be working without anybody from the driver’s chair, crashed into a tree on Saturday night north of Houston, police said.

The 2019 Tesla Model S was traveling at a higher rate of speed, as it failed to negotiate a curve and went off the roadway, crashing into a tree and exploding into flames, local tv channel KHOU-TV explained.

After the fire was extinguished, police found 2 residents in the car, with one at the front passenger seat while another was at the rear seat of this Tesla, ” the report stated, citing Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman.

The U.S. automobile safety bureau said in March it’s started 27 investigations in crashes of Tesla automobiles; at least three of those crashes happened lately.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in January that he anticipates enormous profits from its complete self-driving software, stating he’s”tremendously confident the car will have the ability to drive itself reliability in surplus of the season.”

Self-driving technology has to conquer regulatory and safety hurdles to attain commercial success.

Umanzor said both crash victims were created in 1962 and 1951.
