NTSB Investigates Tesla Crash

By Staff Writer May 11, 2018

The National Transportation Safety Board is sending a team of four to investigate the May 8 fatal electric vehicle crash on State Route A1A in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.


A 2014 Tesla Model S was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed when it struck a wall resulting in a post crash fire. The NTSB does not, at this time, anticipate autopilot being a part of this investigation.


Two vehicle occupants died, and one occupant was injured.

This NTSB investigation primarily focuses on emergency response in relation to the electric vehicle battery fire, including fire department activities and towing operations.
