  • Tesla Autopilot being blamed for a Minnesota accident

Electric auto maker Tesla (TSLA) saw its shares drop Monday after a news report blamed a Tesla auto crash in Minnesota on the vehicle's autopilot feature.

According to the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's office, Mr Clark's Tesla was found overturned in a marsh but the injuries were "minor". When drivers activate Autopilot, the acknowledgment box explains, among other things, that Autopilot "is an assist feature that requires you to keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times", and that "you need to maintain control and responsibility for your vehicle" while using it.

In May 2016, a motorist near Gainesville, Fla., was killed when his Tesla collided with a semitrailer truck while in the self-driving mode.

Palo Alto, California-based Tesla said it's investigating and will cooperate with local authorities.

After the incident, the National Transportation Safety Board issued a full report on the crash and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) decided not to issue a recall of that model of Tesla cars, finding no safety defect.

Tesla is very careful about its Autopilot feature warning drivers against misuse and use of the system.

Autopilot automatically drives, brakes and keeps the auto within a lane.

Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, recently said at the National Governor's Association semi-annual meeting that "Probably in 10 years, more than a half of new vehicle production is electric in the US.I think nearly all cars produced will be autonomous".
