We don't know yet because Tesla is not an autonomous vehicle. Someone should have been at the wheel paying attention.

Tesla driverless car crashes into tree and bursts into flames in Texas, killing two - ABC News

Must be true, it is from the ABC.  The ABC would not lie or distort the truth, would they?

Its also reported in Nth American Media for which the ABC simply took its feed.

Seems that no one was actually in the drivers seat, which if true does seem a bit silly and these guys were more than old enough to know better.

Nobody has anything 'against' the ABC, Mike. Its just biased rubbish, that's all.

Its all naught

The car didn't have autopilot installed

Even if it did, you cannot drive it without someone in the drivers seat.

If the car has been modified away from the manufacturers spec to enable it to be driven without a person in the drivers seat and their own form of autopilot then it has nothing to do with Tesla and shouldn't be making the news beyond the local rag.

Nothing to see here apart from how dumb the media is, so move along and go about your simple lives.

Ouch! Don't like any criticism of electric cars, do you RTT_Rules.

The people in that car were incinerated and died horrible deaths - there was hardly anything left of the vehicle itself. I had no idea lithium ion batteries burnt so well - you probably would have been safer in a petrol or diesel car given the intensity with which that fire burnt.
