A police report of the incident says the electric Tesla Model S was on semi-autonomous Autopilot mode when it sped up from 55 miles per hour (89 kph) to 60 miles per hour (97 kph) in just 3.5 seconds before it hit a truck. There were two injuries.

On Friday, Tesla agreed to settlement of a class-action lawsuit that calls for payments to customers around the world.

Tesla has repeatedly said drivers must be attentive, keep their hands on the wheel, and be able to take control of the vehicle when using Autopilot, which is not a fully autonomous system.
