Tesla car crash – level 2

26-04-2021 07:00

One week ago, a semi-automated Tesla car crashed into a tree in Texas, US. Local media said that the car was going very fast and it went off the road.

It crashed into a tree and it started to burn. Firefighters extinguished the fire, and it was clear that there was no driver in the car. One man was sitting in the front passenger seat, and one man was sitting in the back of the car. Both men died in the accident.

There were more accidents of Tesla cars recently. Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, said in January that he planned to make a new software. This software would drive the car itself, without any help of the driver. These recent accidents could change Musk’s plans.

Difficult words: semi-automated (when a person and a machine work together), extinguish (to stop a fire), front passenger seat (the place next to the driver where another person can sit).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
