It is the third Teslacrash since January that the NHTSA is investigating that may have been linked to autopilot. He argued that the media reports disproportionately stress the dangers by Tesla owners, though later conceding that the system still could be improved.

The driver engaged Autosteer and Traffic Aware Cruise Control on multiple occasions during this drive cycle.
A Tesla spokesperson issued a statement saying the company makes it clear Autopilot is not meant to serve as self-driving technology and that drivers must remain engaged with the vehicle at all times. On more than a dozen occasions, the auto is said to have registered a total absence of hands on its wheel, and twice for periods exceeding a minute in length. Each time she put her hands back on the wheel, she took them back off the wheel after a few seconds. "She did not touch the steering wheel for the next 80 seconds until the crash happened".
The vehicle was traveling at about 60 miles per hour when the crash happened. This is the speed the driver selected. According to the summary released by police, the driver pressed on the brake herself "fractions of a second prior to the crash" and the vehicle had not slowed down from the speed she had set for cruise control.
"When using Autopilot, drivers are continuously reminded of their responsibility to keep their hands on the wheel and maintain control of the vehicle at all times", the spokeswoman said.
