The driver of a Model 3 learned the limits of Tesla’s Autopilot system after slamming into two parked cars in Connecticut. He told law enforcement officers he was checking on his dog on the rear bench.
Posting on its official Facebook page, the Connecticut State Police said the accident happened early Saturday. It sent two patrol cars to secure a broken-down vehicle parked in the left lane of I-95. They had their emergency lights on, and the troopers lit an additional flare behind them, so they should have been visible from several hundred yards away. As the troopers waited for a tow truck, a white Model 3 drove directly into one of their cars, crashed into the vehicle waiting for a tow, and kept moving slowly for several hundred feet before finally coming to a stop.
