    Yesterday we reported on an accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike where a Tesla Model X hit a guard rail, the concrete median and then rollover. The two occupants came out alive and after the fact, the police said that the driver claimed that the Autopilot was activated when the vehicle crashed.

    Reminds me of the Toyota recalls in 2009; people will use the much publicized technological errors to explain any and all serious incidents. Lucky for Tesla that their software systems are so advanced that a day after the incident they already know that it wasn't Autopilot. It would take much longer for a conventional car brand to do the same, and in that time would probably to much more damage to their image.
