Tesla on Autopilot Slams Into Cop Car

This is not a good look for Tesla.

Early Saturday morning, a Tesla driver in a Model 3 on Interstate 95 in Connecticut put the vehicle in autopilot mode so he could check on his dog in the back seat.

Ahead of him, a police officer had stopped on the side of the road to assist a vehicle that had broken down.  The police car was parked behind the stalled vehicle, and had its blue flashing lights on.

The Tesla slammed into the police car and drove it forward into the stalled vehicle.

The Tesla occupant (not driver, at that point) was charged with reckless driving and reckless endangerment.

The Connecticut State Police explained on their Facebook page:

“Regardless of your vehicle’s capabilities, when operating a vehicle your full attention is required at all times to ensure safe driving.”

There was no word on the condition of the dog.

Perhaps the Tesla owner can get Elon Musk to pay for the damage and his bumped up insurance rates.

    President Trump is one of the best President yet.
    Just think if he were a democrat they would have him in a gold recliner with two gold cups to serve him drinks. I can’t believe the dumbcrats have so much hate for him, and what they are doing to this grest country. ” Bill “

    President Trump is a man that loves his country. he is of Honor’
    Just think, if he were a democrat, they would have him in a gold recliner with two gold mugs to serve him drinks, but no the dumbcrats would rather tear him apart and are making us look so bad in other countries. They don’t give a damn for others. When a man took office, they never gave him a chance. They started on him before he even took office. Get the hell off his back and let him do his job, you sore heads. ” Bill “
