AZ Tesla Kills One: Blows Stop Sign, Charged With Second Degree Homicide

Charges have been filed for a March crash in Yuma, Arizona where a Tesla blew a stop sign and killed a driver in another car.

On Friday, March 22, Yuma police said Ray was driving a 2022 Tesla eastbound on County 16th Street at a high rate of speed and did not stop at the stop sign at Avenue 3E.

The Tesla then crashed with a 2006 Toyota Scion driving southbound on Avenue 3E.

Yuma police said Gonzalez, who was driving the Toyota, was ejected from his vehicle and died.

Autopilot seems possible to blame, with a stop sign among a row of bushes and therefore ignored by Tesla’s notoriously low-quality and volatile cameras.
