Driver in fatal Tesla crash had reported problems with Autopilot

Soon after the crash, Huang’s brother explained Huang had talked about the car swerving towards the highway barrier. Huang supposedly complained to the Tesla dealership but explained that they could not replicate the problem. Tesla previously confirmed that Autopilot was engaged at the time of the crash. The firm has insisted that Huang was at fault, saying that the driver obtained many “palms-on warnings” and that the only way the crash could have took place was if Huang wasn’t paying out notice.

Huang’s household has sued Tesla, alleging that the Model X was “defective” in its layout, and a preliminary investigation report by NTSB discovered that the car sped up just ahead of hitting the road barrier. The report also explained the driver’s palms were being not detected on the steering wheel in the 6 seconds ahead of the crash.
