The Wall Street Journal: Tesla says Autopilot was not on during fatal crash in Netherlands

Tesla Motors Inc.’s “Autopilot” feature wasn’t in use during a deadly crash of one of its vehicles south of Amsterdam, the company said.

“We can confirm from the car’s logs that Autopilot was not engaged at any time during the drive cycle and that, consistent with the damage that was observed after the vehicle struck the tree, the vehicle was being driven at more than 155 km/h,” Tesla said Thursday in a prepared statement.

The driver didn’t survive. Tesla and Dutch authorities were investigating the incident Wednesday.

Tesla TSLA, -2.16% crashes have come under scrutiny since the company revealed in June that a Model S ran into a truck in Florida while in its Autopilot feature was engaged.
