U.S. Safety Agency Criticizes Tesla Crash Data Release

 Monday, April 2, 2018


The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board said on Sunday it was “unhappy” that electric car maker Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) made public information about the crash of its Model X vehicle on Autopilot that killed the driver last month. The agency “needs the cooperation of Tesla to decode the data the vehicle recorded,” NTSB spokesman Chris O’Neil said in a statement. “In each of our investigations involving a Tesla vehicle, Tesla has been extremely cooperative on assisting with the vehicle data.” “However, the NTSB is unhappy with the release of investigative information by Tesla,” he added.
