The Accident Involving a Tesla Car in Autopilot Mode

Q13 Fox reported that the deputy, who was driving the patrol car, responded to a call that a vehicle had hit a power pole and sheared it in half.

The deputy has parked his vehicle on the side of the road with his emergency lights flashing. About 30 seconds after he had gotten out of the patrol car to speak with firefighters, a Tesla in autopilot mode crashed on the deputy's vehicle, Associated Press reported. 

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office confirmed that the patrol car got significant damage on its driver's side. Q13 Fox cited a Facebook post from Snohomish County Sheriff's Office, saying that autopilot "cannot be relied upon to" when trying to get safely to a destination.

More Recorded Accidents Involving Tesla Cars

This is not the first time that a Tesla autopilot crashed and prompted accidents. Earlier in May, a Tesla car reported to be in autopilot mode was caught in a fatal crash in Fontana, a city 50 miles from Los Angeles, The Guardian reported. 

A 35-year-old victim identified as Steven Michael Hendrickson died when his Tesla Model 3 struck an overturned truck on a freeway.

An Instagram video in Hendrickson's account, which was already deleted, showed that the 35-year-old man was sitting in the driver's seat without his hands on the wheel and foot on the pedal as his Tesla car drove the freeway traffic.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) underscored that their preliminary investigations revealed that Tesla's partially automated system was engaged. However, the CHP backpedaled on their statement, saying it was still determining what driving mode the Tesla was in or if it was a contributing factor to the crash.

Elon Musk Says Tesla Autopilot Not to Blame

In April, Elon Musk tweeted that the autopilot mode of Tesla should not be blamed for the fatal crashes. Elon Musk's tweet comes as two men were killed in Texas after their Tesla crashed into a tree and caught fire.

Elon Musk argued that data logs on the Texas incident in April indicated that the Tesla autopilot was not turned on. Elon Musk added that the standard autopilot would require lane lines to turn on, which the Texas street, where the said accident happened, did not have.

The autopilot in Tesla vehicles, which is now standard, does not always perfectly identify lane markers. Reports said it could confuse sealed road cracks and bike lanes with other lane markers.
