On Monday, two people were killed when their Tesla car collided with a tree on the road near the American city of Houston, which caused the car to ignite and the occupants died, and it took the firefighting forces 3 hours to control the fire.
While the investigations continue, initial reports confirmed that the Tesla car battery continued to re-ignite whenever the firefighters extinguished its fire, and the firefighting forces contacted the electric car company to find a quick way to control the ignition of its battery car.
According to KHOU, investigators have determined that there was no person behind the wheel during the accident, and one passenger was in the seat next to the driver’s seat, while the other person was in the back seat.
The initial reports of the investigations indicated that the car was traveling at a high speed, and it failed to turn due to its speed, which led to its departure from the road and colliding directly with a tree.
Initial reports have not yet confirmed whether the AutoPilot automated driving assistant was activated before the accident or not, and this will become clear with the progress of the investigation process.
Tesla did not comment on the incident yet, as it had canceled its public relations sector, which was responsible for communicating with the media.
