Leaked Video: Autopilot? Tesla slams into an overturned truck at high speed

PortandTerminal.com, June 1, 2020

The driver, who was miraculously unharmed, was using at least some of the Tesla’s Autopilot driver-assist features

TAIPEI, TAIWAN – A video of a Tesla Model 3 crashing into a truck on the highway while reportedly being on Autopilot is going viral. Here’s what we know.

The incident took place in Taiwan yesterday. The truck had rolled over onto its side on the highway, leaving the roof of its box exposed to oncoming traffic.

A Tesla Model 3 owner reportedly driving with some Autopilot driver-assist features didn’t see the truck and the safety feature didn’t stop the collision.

You even can someone at the side of the road waving at the Tesla to warn them. Had a driver been in control there’s no way they would have missed this warning.

The electric vehicle slammed into the truck at highway speed. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt. Perhaps the airbags it the Tesla were working better than the Autopilot.

The accident was caught on security cameras and it has been going viral on social media
