Tesla Lawsuit

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (WWSB) - Tesla is facing another wrongful death lawsuit because of a crash caused by their autopilot system in West Palm Beach.

This week, the family of Jeremy Banner appeared in court and asked for more than $15,000 in damages.

The crash happened back in March as Banner was driving to Delray Beach when his car crashed into a tractor-trailer and killed him instantly.

According to a report by the National Transportation Safety Board, Banner turned on his autopilot about ten seconds before the crash.

Tesla has not yet responded to this lawsuit.
