NTSB Investigating a Tesla That Crashed Into Fire Truck Engine


The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating an accident that involved a Tesla vehicle that crashed into a fire truck engine on the 405 freeway. The driver told the firefighters that the car was on autopilot during the time of the collision. The zero-emissions car hit the back of the fire truck while it sped down the highway at an appropriate 65 miles per hour, on Monday. There were no injuries reported, but one day later, federal investigators had become involved. The crash occurred when the Tesla bumped into the fire truck which, at the time, was responding to a downed motorcycle incident. The driver claimed that the car was on autopilot at the time of the crash. Autopilot is a feature of the Tesla that, as its website claims, is “full self-driving capability at a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver.” There have been other crashes involving the self-driving feature that the NTSB says that people are relying too much on the computer. Tesla has already made a number of changes to their self-driving program to better handle the invariability of the human driver, as well as to make it safer. Tesla currently classifies its self-driving feature as “driver assistance system,” which means that it still relies on its human driver. Tesla reported saying that, “Autopilot is intended for use only with a fully attentive driver.”

The DTLA Law Group

Our law firm is here for you when you get involved in an accident. If you were involved in an accident with a driver assistance system, you are entitled to compensation. The reason? It is because the company has the responsibility that the car functions properly. That means that the brakes work, the steering wheel works, and, yes, the self-driving system. If the self-driving system caused injuries, you have the right to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for the damages.
  • Medical bills: Healthcare is incredibly expensive in the U.S. When you get injured in a car crash, you can receive the necessary damages to cover the hospital bills. This amount may include the cost of any future procedures you may need, including physical therapy.
  • Lost wages: When you don’t work, you don’t get your wages. And that may mean that you are out of financial income for essentials like rent/mortgage and food for your family. You can recover the salary that you would have made if you did not get injured at your normal rate of pay. Additionally, if you’ve been permanently disabled, you can earn lost potential wages.
  • Pain and suffering: Pain and severe trauma can induce mental disorders like anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other such illnesses. The right attorney can prove you suffer from psychological disorder and get you more compensation.
