Tesla Driver was Watching a Movie on Auto-Pilot when He Rammed into Officers
Dash-cam video shows the moment a Tesla driver rammed into a police unit as he narrowly missed running over officers who were on the side of the road. The driver of the vehicle was reportedly distracted while watching a movie as the car on auto-pilot hit the police unit.
North Carolina troopers had to quickly jump out of the way of a police cruiser that had been rammed into by a Tesla on auto-pilot. The driver of the vehicle was apparently watching a movie on his phone and not paying attention when the crash occurred.
Newly released video shows more from the 2020 incident that could have ended much worse. The driver was reportedly charged for not moving over for an emergency vehicle and for distracted driving. Another report says that the county sheriff informed the outlet that the case was later dismissed.
