North Brunswick, NJ: Driver blames Tesla autopilot for crash on Route 1

A New Jersey man is blaming his Tesla car’s autopilot feature for a crash on Route 1 North Brunswick.

Eric Carter tells News 12 New Jersey that his X-Model Tesla electric car misread the lines on the road, causing him to crash near Adams Lane.

Carter says that as he was driving north on Route 1 with his hands on the steering wheel, the car turned to the right, sending him into the median. He says that he was able to slightly correct the turn and avoid hitting a road sign head-on.
