It is stated that federal security regulators in the USA will appoint a special delegation to examine the Tesla driverless accident that occurred on April 17, in the state of Texas, where 2 people died.

In a statement made by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), it was noted that nobody was in the driver’s seat of the electric Tesla during the accident that occurred in the Spring campus in the north of Houston.

In the statement, which stated that the incident will be examined by the “special collision investigation” team, it was stated that it will be determined whether the Tesla in question was used with the “Autopilot driver support system” or the company’s “Full Self-Driving Capability” system.

The 2019 Tesla S model electric vehicle went off the road, hit a tree and burned in flames. Two people, one in the front passenger seat and the other in the back, died in the accident.
