Tesla’s autopilot system has gained notoriety after numerous crashes. Since June 2016, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has investigated 31 accidents involving Tesla vehicles in which the drivers had the autopilot feature activated at the time.
A Tesla automobile on autopilot caused a car accident on Saturday morning, hitting two vehicles, including one patrol car, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The crash occurred on Interstate 4, in Orange County. The state trooper was said to have noticed a Mercedes stopped on the highway, and pulled over with his emergency lights turned on, getting out of his car to potentially assist the driver, when the Tesla drove onto them.
The Tesla was said to have failed to slow down or avoid the two vehicles, striking both. There were no reports of casualties as the trooper reportedly reacted quickly and leapt back in the nick of time.
Earlier in the month, the NHTSA began a review of the Tesla automated driving system, following several accidents involving Tesla and emergency vehicles.
