Two Die After Tesla On Auto-Pilot With No One In Driving Seat Crashes Into Tree

Two men died after a Tesla on autopilot with no one driving crashed into a tree in Houston before starting a huge fire.

The 2019 Tesla Model S slammed into the tree around 11.25 p.m. on Saturday night before bursting into flames with the passengers still inside.

Firefighters used 32,000 gallons of water over four hours to try to put out the flames because the car's batteries kept reigniting.

An investigation had found that “no one was driving” when the accident happened: one man was sitting in the passenger seat at the front and the second sitting in the back.
