Tesla on Autopilot crashes into stopped truck in Pennsylvania -police

Police reported on Monday that a Tesla vehicle operating on its Autopilot software crashed into a stationary truck on a highway in Pennsylvania on Friday night. This incident has added to the scrutiny of the automaker’s driver assistance system. The Tesla was traveling in the middle lane when it struck the rear end of a Freightliner semi-truck that was parked in the same lane and providing traffic control for a right lane closure.

The police stated that the car lost control due to being on Autopilot, and the 18-year-old male driver was charged with “careless driving.” Fortunately, no injuries were reported. Tesla, which does not have a public relations department, did not respond to a request for comment.

U.S. regulators have been investigating a series of accidents where Tesla vehicles on Autopilot collided with parked emergency vehicles. In February, a Tesla Model S crashed into a stationary fire truck in Walnut Creek, California, killing the car’s driver and triggering an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Tesla says Autopilot enables a car to steer, accelerate and brake automatically within its lane, but those features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous.
