A study released by AAA in May revealed that motor vehicle accidents involving teenage drivers increase by 15-17% between Memorial Day and Labor Day -- a period of time that the study dubs the "100 Deadliest Days." Crash data from 2013-2017 showed a consistent spike in accidents during the summer months. Researchers found that more than 700 people died in crashes involving teen drivers between Memorial Day and Labor Day over the study's five-year span.
On March 1, a Tesla Model 3 was headed down a divided highway in Florida. The driver turned on the Autopilot system, which uses computers, cameras and long-range radar to avoid crashes. Almost as soon as the driver turned on the Autopilot and took his hands off the wheel, he crashed into a semi-truck. The car went under the trailer and killed the 50-year-old driver.
