Tesla logs show that Model X driver hit the accelerator, Autopilot didn’t crash into building on its own
Earlier this morning, we reported on a strange Model X accident that ended with the SUV crashing into a building in Irvine, California. Fortunately, no one was severely injured in the accident, but the Model X owner claims that the vehicle accelerated on its own while entering a parking space and the driver was unable to decelerate before it ‘autonomously’ crashed into the building.
We contacted Tesla and the company reviewed the logs around the time of the accident. A representative is now assuring us that the Autopilot was not at fault and that the vehicle operated in a way consistent with the driver’s actions. Expand
