Autopilot is a system that is capable of steering a Tesla within a highway lane while controlling its speed, according to the automaker.
In Detroit on Monday, a Tesla Model Y crashed into the trailer of a semi-truck in what was initially suspected to be another Autopilot incident, but police later said they didn’t think the feature was being used, Fox 2 WJBK reported.
However, the Detroit Police and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are continuing investigations into the accident to determine if the technology was involved.
