The automatic pilot system of Tesla kills another motorcyclist, the United States launches an investigation

A Tesla vehicle would have killed another motorcyclist, this time in the State of Utah in the United States when a conductor using automatic pilot hit the back of his bike.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is a new crash list. Quarante-huit accidents font l’objet d’une enquête, dont 39 implictent des véhicules Tesla.

Utah’s road patrol team said the incident occurred Sunday on I-15 in south direction, according to local information.

The driver of the Tesla did not see the motorcyclist and serait entré en collision avec l’arrière de la moto, ce qui aurait éjecté le motard du vélo. Le motard a subi des bessures mortelles sur les lieux, rapporte abc4.

The Ministère de la Sécurité publique de l’Utah declared that the Tesla driver had entered a collision with the back of the motorcycle, throwing the motorcyclist to the ground and killing him.

The driver used the Tesla Autopilot system at the time of the accident, authorities said.

Tesla’s advanced driver assistance system, known as automatic pilot, is increasingly being monitored by the federal agency.

Last week, the NHTSA opened an investigation into a 2021 Tesla Model Y accident that killed a motorcyclist in California at the beginning of the month.

The American agency also opened an investigation into one of these fatal accidents in which a pedestrian was killed and a Tesla Model 3 2018 was involved in California.

The NHTSA is also investigating another fatal Tesla accident in Florida that killed a 66-year-old Tesla driver and a 67-year-old passenger.

First, the agency began investigating an accident involving a Tesla Model S 2022 that killed three people.
