Tesla crash report shows driver kept his hands off the wheel nearly the whole trip


The man killed in a Tesla Model S crash in May 2016 wasn’t heeding Tesla’s security advice despite being warned by the car numerous times, an in-depth investigation has shown. 

Former Navy SEAL and Tesla enthusiast Joshua Brown was driving on the highway near Williston, Florida, when his Model S hit the side of a tractor trailer without braking. 

A 538-page report by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), published online late last week, has concluded that Brown didn’t have his hands on the wheel while the car was in autopilot mode, a requirement from Tesla.
