Currently, two federal agencies, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash. In interviews following the crash, local police stated that there was no one driving the 2019 Tesla Model S. The vehicle veered off the road and hit a tree before bursting into flames.
Musk replied to a Twitter user commenting on a Wall Street Journal post saying, “Data logs recovered so far show Autopilot was not enabled & this car did not purchase FSD. Moreover, standard Autopilot would require lane lines to turn on, which this street did not have.”
Tesla sells the autopilot or Full Self Driving capabilities separately. The company also warns driver to use "active supervision" with the software.
