According to the report, the Model X crashed into the highway divider at a speed of 71 miles per hour. As the NTSB notes, eight seconds prior to the crash the Tesla was following a lead vehicle and traveling at around 65 miles per hour (104 km/h).
"TeslaAutopilot does not prevent all accidents - such a standard would be impossible - but it makes them much less likely to occur", the company wrote in the post.
Electronic vehicle maker says autonomous auto pilot system was working fine and driver Walter Huang should have been paying attention.
The NTSB said information downloaded from the vehicle showed Huang turned on the Tesla's Autopilot function four times during the 32-minute-long drive, and Autopilot was on for almost all of the final 19 minutes of the drive up until the auto crashed. Just four seconds prior to the impact, the vehicle in front moved out of the way and the Tesla began to speed up.
During the 60 seconds prior to the crash, the driver's hands were detected on the steering wheel on three separate occasions, for a total of 34 seconds; for the last 6 seconds prior to the crash, the vehicle did not detect the driver's hands on the steering wheel.

The firetruck was unoccupied and no injuries were claimed by anyone at the crash scene, authorities said.
The crash still remains under investigation, with assistance from the California Highway Patrol and Caltrans. "Never depend on Automatic Emergency Braking to avoid or reduce the impact of a collision". "It is the driver's responsibility to drive safely and remain in control of the vehicle at all times", it says.
