Tesla Driver Slams Into Firetruck - Killed - Amid Mass Recall

Tesla Driver Slams Into Firetruck … Killed Amid Mass Recall

(Tesla Driver Dies After Ramming Into Firetruck Amid Mass Recall)

More bad news for Tesla – somebody driving one of their vehicles died this weekend after crashing into a firetruck … and happened to be in the same model that’s now facing a recall.

The accident happened Saturday in Walnut Creek, CA – where officials say a Tesla Model S plowed into a fire engine that was blocking off a freeway to cover another crew that was clearing a separate accident on I-680. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene

Law enforcement says it’s unclear if the driver was under the influence or if they were using a self-driving feature. If it’s discovered the driver was, in fact, using the autopilot – which has since come under major scrutiny – it could spell more trouble for the EV company.

(gotta wonder how many times “self driving” was engaged because the driver knew they were too buzzed to drive -sigh-)


If their “autopilot” can’t handle the case of a big fire truck blocking the road with emergency lights, then it needs to be scrapped.
