    As reported on the BBC.

    Two men were killed after a Tesla car crashed into a tree and caught fire in Texas, and police believe there was nobody present in the driver’s seat at the time of the accident.
    The 2019 Tesla Model S was travelling at a high speed when it failed to negotiate a curve on a winding road.
    The victims, both in their 50s, were found in the front passenger seat and in the back of the vehicle.

    Texas?  The driver was probably abducted by aliens. Happens a lot in Texas, apparently…

    No, definitely aliens:

    According to Tesla, data logs recovered so far show Autopilot was not enabled & this car did not purchase Full Self Driving. Moreover, standard Autopilot would require lane lines to turn on, which this street did not have.

    This reminds of a story I read back in the 80’s or 90’s about some guy turning on the cruse control in his brand new camper van, or RV’s as American friends like to call them, then going out the back to make a cup of coffee and of course the RV ended up in a ditch completely ruined. He sued the manufacturer and won because it never gave any warning in the manual that you could not do that.

    That’s why today the first two hundred pages of your car manual is nothing but do’s and don’ts along with hundreds of warning triangles plus why everyday stupid warnings we see like “May Contain Nuts” is seen on your packet of Cashews. 😊

    ..and the first three minutes of a call to insurance companies is taken up with recorded messages about who what and why and the intricateness of their relationship with every other body in the insurance industry.

    So basically the driver crashed the car going too fast for his skills/iQ 🍺 and after surviving the crash checked on his 2 dead friends and decided to go back to the bar and finish off his drinking session.
