This isn’t the first time an all-electric Tesla car will be crashing into a stationary or moving vehicle in the US.

Back in 2019, a Tesla driver was killed after an all-electric car ran under a truck. The roof of the car was sheared off as it kept on going on the other side of the truck.

Since 2016, the NHTSA has opened investigations at least 14 times into Tesla vehicle crashes. Tesla autopilot has been responsible for at least three fatal crashes in the U.S. The self-driving system allows you to take your hands off the wheel for a short time.
