WASHINGTON --  Tesla Inc.'s Autopilot feature was engaged during a fatal March 1 crash of a 2018 Model 3 in Delray Beach, Fla., in at least the third fatal U.S. crash reported involving the driver-assistance system, the National Transportation Safety Board said on Thursday.

 

The NTSB's preliminary report said the driver engaged Autopilot about 10 seconds before crashing into a semitrailer, and the system did not detect the driver's hands on the wheel for fewer than eight seconds before the crash.

 

The vehicle was traveling at about 68 miles per hour (mph) on a highway with a 55-mph speed limit, and neither the system nor the driver made any evasive maneuvers, the agency said.

 

Tesla said in a statement that soon after the crash it shared information with regulators about the Autopilot status and said after the driver engaged the system he "immediately removed his hands from the wheel. Autopilot had not been used at any other time during that drive."
