Tesla Settles Fatal ‘Autopilot’ Crash Lawsuit, Details Being Kept Under Wraps

Automotive giant Tesla has opted to settle a lawsuit filed by the family of Apple engineer Walter Huang, who was killed in a 2018 crash while using Tesla’s “Autopilot” software in his car.

The case was set to go to trial this week but the company has opted to settle out of court instead. The plaintiffs argued Tesla’s Autopilot was defective and directly resulted in the death of Mr. Huang.

The April 8 court document filed in the Superior Court of the State of California doesn’t reveal the details of the settlement and how much, if any, financial compensation was part of the deal.

Tesla claimed Mr. Huang became distracted while driving his 2017 Tesla Model X, which struck a highway barrier in Mountain View, California. In the ensuing chaos, two other vehicles, a 2010 Mazda 3 and a 2017 Audi A4, were also struck. The Tesla’s high-voltage battery was breached in the collision, and a postcrash fire ensued. The Mazda driver sustained minor injuries, and the Audi driver was uninjured.
