Another Tesla crash: NTSB launches investigation

NBC Miami

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a Tesla crash in Florida this week that killed two high school students - the second fatal accident involving a Tesla in the past six weeks.

A separate team is still looking into the recent fatal Model X crash in California, which prompted a public spat with Tesla after the company released statements of the crash without clearing the releases with the lead investigator.

The NTSB is requesting manufacturers report incidents, crashes and exposure numbers involving vehicles equipped with automated vehicle control systems.

Tesla has been contacted for comment.

"We talked about the challenges we faced", Diaz said. A spokesperson tells USA Today that "had Autopilot been engaged it would have limited the vehicle's speed to 35mph or less on this street". One of the other NTSB investigations also focuses on a battery fire. Most of those batteries are years away from commercialization, however.

"The battery began to overheat even though we had already cooled the battery and it continued to reignite". "That's why we called the manufacturer of the vehicle".

It is also flanked by Deadpool's hand, a baby's hand, a cat's paw and a dog's paw. The R-Rated movie's sequel has kept majority of the plot under the wrap.

Tesla announced that it was working with authorities to establish the facts of the fatal vehicle crash.

"If the high voltage battery catches fire, is exposed to high heat, or is bent, twisted, cracked, or breached in any way, use large amounts of water to cool the battery". Mountain View firefighters escorted the tow truck to the yard, in case the battery re-ignited. The vehicle "immediately caught on fire, becoming fully engulfed in flames", police said. Lithium-ion battery fires can be particularly challenging for first responders, however, with toxic vapors and potential repeated reignition of a partially extinguished fire. "The battery overheats. It's not an event that surprised anybody".

Before Autopilot was available, Teslas were involved in two high profile fires in 2013, in which drivers ran over metal objects in the road which popped up and punctured the cars' battery packs.

Following another fatal accident in March that involved the car's battery bursting into flames, Tesla reported that the batteries in its vehicles are created to decrease the rate fire spreads, leaving enough time for occupants to exit the vehicle.

The crash remains under investigation by the NTSB.
