The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Saturday is investigating a fatal Tesla Inc Model S crash in Davie, Florida that killed the driver and suffered a major fire, the second fatal crash this week the agency is probing.


The agency and the National Transportation Safety Board said Friday they are sending teams to investigate a fatal crash Friday in Delray Beach, Florida of a 2018 Model 3 that crashed into a semi-trailer. A NHTSA spokesman said Saturday the agency "will take additional actions if appropriate" in the two investigations. Tesla did not immediately comment Saturday. The company's Enhanced Autopilot is the next step in Tesla's vision of a fully self-driving car. There is no evidence so far that the new technology caused the fatal crashes and Tesla is hoping autopilot tech can prevent human error.
