According to the tweet, the driver says the vehicle was on Autopilot. The Culver City Firefighters Twitter account tweeted out photos of the crash, stating "Amazingly there were no injuries". While truly driverless cars are still a few years away, Tesla Autopilot functions like the systems that airplane pilots use when conditions are clear. The company has repeatedly warned drivers in its owner's manual for concentrating on the road while exploiting the semi-autonomous Autopilot system.

Both emergency vehicles had their lights flashing, Powell added. A subsequent investigation by the US National Transportation Safety Board found the driver was speeding and had been warned by the auto six times to keep his hands on the wheel.

In a separate incident over the weekend, a man was arrested and charged with a DUI after police discovered him passed out behind the wheel of a Tesla vehicle travelling in autopilot mode on the Bay Bridge in California. The investigation following the crash concluded, in part, that Tesla didn't have sufficient safeguards to ensure driver attention while using autopilot.
