Driver Killed As Self Driving Tesla Runs Into Truck

Joshua D. Brown was killed when his Tesla Model S crashed into the side of a tractor trailer on May 7th, leading to an NHTSA investigation of Tesla’s Autopilot feature’s failure to detect the truck. A new report claims that a Harry Potter movie could be heard playing in the car after the crash.

According to the statement released on Thursday by Tesla detailing the accident, both the car’s Autopilot system and the driver failed to apply the brake pedal leading up to the collision with the tractor trailer.

The car impacted the trailer at the windshield level and then continued down the road until crashing through two fences and a light post. The driver of the Model S, Joshua Brown, was killed in the accident.

As reported by the Associated Press, the driver of the tractor trailer claims the driver of the Model S was playing a Harry Potter movie from inside the car, which reportedly could still be heard after the accident.
