The Tesla autopilot has been involved in at least three fatal crashes that have occurred in the United States since 2016. An incident investigation agency task force checked 12 Tesla vehicle accidents when it was suspected that autopilot was involved during the incident. To date, reports on two of them are ready. In one case, it was confirmed that the autopilot worked at the time of the accident. In another case, the autopilot factor was excluded.
