The Reason Why Tesla Explodes after Collision on Russian Highway. A Tesla exploded Saturday night on a busy road in Moscow in Russia.
According to the investigation, due to a failure in the autopilot, the Tesla deviated and collided with a tow truck. The dashcam of an oncoming car recorded the spectacular accident.
At the time of the crash, driver Alexi Tretyakov was driving with his hands on the wheel.
Both the man and the automatic control system did not see the tow truck, with all its consequences.
Tretyakov and his two children were able to escape from the car just before the explosion.
