Tesla hits parked California police vehicle; driver blames 'Autopilot'

A Tesla Model S veered into a parked police cruiser Tuesday, severely damaging both vehicles in Laguna Beach, Calif., a coastal community south of Los Angeles.

The police department vehicle was empty at the time of the collision, while the driver of the Tesla Model S sustained minor injuries.

The driver suffered minor injuries, Cota said.

In one of the incidents earlier this month, a Tesla Model S in Autopilot mode hit a stopped firetruck in Salt Lake City, Utah.

But Mr Moon suggested Mr Kim was not certain whether Washington could guarantee the stability of his regime. In the meantime, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Kim held a second meeting in Panmunjom Saturday.

Last week, the Center for Auto Safety and Consumer Watchdog called on the Federal Trade Commission to investigate Tesla's marketing practices, and accused the company of "deceiving and misleading consumers into believing its vehicle's Autopilot feature is safer and more capable than it is in practice".

Whether an Autopilot feature was engaged when a Model S collided with the rear of a stopped fire truck in the USA state of Utah on May 11 remained to be confirmed.

Regarding the latest crash, Tesla issued a statement, saying: "When using Autopilot, drivers are continuously reminded of their responsibility to keep their hands on the wheel and maintain control of the vehicle at all times". Tesla updated Autopilot following that accident.

Launched in late 2015, Tesla's Autopilot feature is meant to "relieve drivers of the most tedious and potentially unsafe aspects of road travel" and includes standard safety features like automatic emergency braking and collision warnings, but it is not meant to replace navigation by a human driver.
