Tesla has recently come under scrutiny for its Autodrive feature on its vehicles, which authorities believe may have contributed to at least a dozen crashes. Now, authorities are investigating a Tesla that crashed into a Florida home and killed two people Friday.
WSVN.com reports that the crash occurred in Palm Harbor when the Tesla ran a stop sign, popped a curb, and crashed into a home.
