A California jury has decided that Tesla’s Autopilot was not to blame for a 2019 Riverside County accident that left the driver dead and his wife and son seriously injured. This is the second time this year that a court has found Autopilot not guilty of a serious accident.

The lawsuit was filed by the victims, who claimed that an autopilot malfunction caused the Tesla Model 3 to fly off the highway at 105 km/h, crash into a tree and catch fire. The driver died in the accident, and his wife and 8-year-old son were seriously injured.

Tesla denied that the autopilot was faulty and claimed that the driver had consumed alcohol before the crash. Nine members of the jury agreed with Tesla after four days of discussions.

Recall that Apple won a long-term legal dispute with Epic Games. All because of violation of the rules of the App Store.
