Man dies after Tesla crashes into San Francisco area pond

CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in the San Francisco Bay Area are investigating the death of a man after a Tesla car he was driving veered off a road, crashed through a fence and into a pond.

KTVU-TV reports that rescuers pulled the submerged car, a Tesla Model S, from the pond early Monday and found the man’s body inside. He was not identified.

California Highway Patrol says the car swerved off a road near the city of San Ramon around 8 p.m. Sunday night. Officials were investigating the cause of the crash.

California authorities are investigating a March 23 crash of a Tesla Model X SUV on a California highway that killed the driver.

They’re looking into the performance of Tesla’s semi-autonomous Autopilot driving system.
