BERLIN (CBS / AP) — Police in northern Germany say that a Tesla driver is blaming the car’s autopilot after crashing into the rear end of a bus on a highway.
Ratzeburg police say that the crash happened Wednesday afternoon on a stretch of autobahn about 50 kilometers (30 miles) east of Hamburg. The Tesla driver was slightly injured.
Police said in a statement Thursday that the 50-year-old Tesla driver told officers he had used the car’s autopilot. It wasn’t immediately clear whether police had themselves confirmed the autopilot’s use, and calls to the Ratzeburg police precinct weren’t answered late Thursday.
