April 29 A Tesla crash in Texas has killed local police, local police say. In response, National Transportation Safety Board officials told the media that they are releasing a preliminary report as soon as possible.
“Preliminary reports are usually released within a month, but we are working to do so as soon as possible because we realize that the accident has caused confusion to the public,” Christine Poland, deputy director of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), said in an interview, Reuters reported Tuesday. The regulator also said the report would be based on hard facts.
Earlier in April, a Tesla crashed into a tree and caught fire in Texas, killing passengers sitting on the co-pilot and the owner of the back seat. Police said it was clear there was no one in the driver’s seat at the time of the crash. In response, Tesla disputed police claims that the deformed steering wheel indicated that someone might be in the driver’s seat.
