FAST FIVE: Tesla Attempts To Pass Semi On The Right, Winds Up Sideways Being Pushed For Miles Down Kentucky Highway
The driver approached a semi-truck who had been driving in the same lane for a while on its right hand side.
When the vehicle (unclear if it was the drivers' decision or Autopilot's decision) attempted to pass the truck on the right, in its blind spot, the truck clipped the Tesla's trunk.
Autopilot warned the driver, the video says, but it was “too late”.
Autopilot attempted to “steer away from the truck” but the force of the truck was too much, the video said.
This is likely for not checking his blind spot while changing lanes.
