U.S. Agency opens investigation involving Tesla due to 14 Crash Deaths

The Index Today

An auto safety agency in the U.S. said on Wednesday that it has opened an investigation into a fatal crash involving a Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) vehicle in California this month that had recently resulted in three deaths and could have been caused by its feature of advanced driver assistance system.

A total of 14 crash deaths have been reported in those Tesla investigations, including the three recent fatalities.


According to the report, the crash, involving a 2022 model Tesla Model S that slammed into construction equipment in Newport Beach last week, is one of 35 under investigation by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) involving Tesla vehicles in which advanced driver assistance systems like Autopilot were suspected of being used since 2016.

NHTSA confirmed the new probe of a May 12 Tesla Model S crash that killed three in the vehicle and injured three workers, when it struck construction equipment along the Pacific Coast Highway in Newport Beach. Newport Beach Police declined to say Wednesday if the Tesla vehicle was in Autopilot mode at the time of the crash, saying it remains under investigation, Reuters reported.
