The Wall Street Journal and local television station KPRC 2 reported Sunday that two people were killed in a Tesla crash, none of them behind the wheel.

According to media reports, the vehicle was speeding when it collided with a tree and caught fire on Saturday night. Officers found only two people, one in the passenger seat and the other in the back seat.

They did not determine Sunday whether the driver’s seat airbag was used at the time of the collision and whether the vehicle’s driver assistance system was involved.

On its website, Tesla warns that the driver assistance systems they provide will not autonomize the vehicle and require active driver supervision.

But videos usually show Tesla asleep or for a long time without hands on the wheel.
