Tesla's Autopilot system, contrary to its name, probably does not allow the car to drive alone, since once again it was involved in an accident.
This time, a 3 Tesla Model 2019 with the Autopilot system activated crashed into two parked cars near downtown Orlando, Florida.
Early Saturday morning, a 27-year-old Model 3 driver crashed into a parked Florida police patrol, according to the Associated Press.
The policeman had stopped to help another driver who was having problems with his vehicle when the Model 3 crashed into the patrol car. He almost fell on the policeman who was getting out of his car at that time.
The Model 3 then collided with the other parked vehicle.
Fortunately, there were no deaths. The 27-year-old driver of the Model 3 and the driver of the other car suffered minor injuries. The policeman was not injured, according to the AP.
Authorities are continuing to investigate the cause of the accident. CNBC reports that it has not yet been determined whether the Tesla autopilot caused or contributed to the accident.
Of course, Tesla does not comment, having disbanded its public relations team last year.
Recall that Elon Musk is ready to build the first commercial humanoid.
