A Tesla driver who originally blamed a crash on his car’s partially self-driving autopilot system has recanted. The driver, Richard Clark, sent an email to the Sheriff’s office saying he was confused in the moments after the crash, but after discussing the incident with his passenger, he now believes that he disengaged the autopilot by stepping on the accelerator before the crash. Tesla said it is investigating the incident and will cooperate with local authorities.
