  • The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has assigned a team of investigators to look into the May 7 fatal crash in Willliston, Florida, involving a Tesla vehicle operating in Autopilot mode. Notably, the NTSB normally investigates accidents involving trains, planes, buses, and ships. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Florida Highway Patrol have already launched their own investigations into the accident. Joshua Brown , 40, was killed when his 2015 Tesla Model S, while in Autopilot mode, struck a truck engaging in a left hand turn in front of the Tesla.
