Elon Musk has tweeted that there was no autopilot or FSD activated during the recent Tesla crash.
The best theory that is making the rounds now is that the two people who died in a Tesla crash had accelerated to high speed, did not have control in a turn, hit a tree, this started a fire. The crash and the fire prevented them from getting out.
This doesn’t make sense.There are safety measures in place with the autopilot Seat is weighted to
make sure there is a driver ,hands must be on steering wheel every 10 seconds or it disengages.
Autopilot doesn’t go over the speed limits oover limit isi mpossible… Research pls

Your research as a private individual is better than professionals @WSJ!
Data logs recovered so far show Autopilot was not enabled & this car did not purchase FSD.
Moreover, standard Autopilot would require lane lines to turn on, which this street did not have.
