Two 18-year-olds were trapped in the vehicle and died in the flames.

A 48-year-old German driver died last Thursday when his auto hit a barrier on a highway in the southern Swiss canton of Ticino, before flipping over and bursting into flames.

"The system worked as described, which is that it's a hands-on system". "And (the Tesla driver) could be facing a citation for failing to maintain control of her vehicle".

The safety agency has yet to announce whether it will be looking into the Utah crash.
