>> A Tesla, running on auto pilot, crashed into a parked police cruiser, the latest of several accidents involving the company's vehicles. The driver of the Tesla sedan suffered only minor Injuries in the Tuesday accident while the parked car belonging to the Laguna Beach Police Department was unoccupied. In a statement following the crash, the company said, Tesla has always been clear that Autopilot doesn't make the car impervious to all accidents.
Earlier this month, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it was sending a team to investigate another Tesla involved crash in Utah. Data from that accident showed the Model S driver turned on autopilot mode one minute and 22 seconds before she smashed into a Firetruck. The agency is also looking into a fatal crash in March involving a Tesla in autopilot that struck a highway divider.
The series of accidents causing a major headache for CEO Elon Musk who says Tesla's vehicles are among the safest in the industry.
