The judge sees evidence of “negligence” by Musk and Tesla in the fatal accidents of their autonomous cars

Hard setback for Elon Musk and Tesla in one of the judicial processes that analyze the fatal accidents that their cars had while their autonomous driving system, called “Autopilot,” was activated. A court in Florida (USA) has detected “reasonable evidence” that the magnate and his company knew that “Autopilot was defective” before the accidents, despite which they not only allowed Tesla owners to continue using it, but also They developed an intense marketing campaign that exaggerated their capabilities.

The court has investigated the facts surrounding the death of Jeremy Banner in March 2019, when the Tesla Model S he was driving went under a truck at 110 kilometers per hour. In a forceful order to which elDiario.es has had access, the judge points out the existence of indications of “negligence” in Tesla’s conduct, which “was so reckless and lacking care that it constituted a conscious contempt or indifference towards life, security or rights” of Banner.
