Two killed as Tesla without anyone in the driver’s seat crashes

Two people were killed in Texas in the crash of a Tesla Saturday night. Authorities say there was no one in the driver’s seat at the time of the crash. There was a person in the front passenger seat and another in a rear passenger seat. Deputies said the car was traveling fast and failed to navigate a turn before running off the road, hitting a tree, and bursting into flames.

Well their life insurance won't be paying out. Tesla explicitly states a driver should still be present in the event of error.

We haven't perfected self-driving cars yet. Always stay behind the wheel.

Yeah my only question is why was no one in the front seat behind the wheel? We have not reached Stage 5 autonomous driving where you don't have to be behind the wheel, Tesla doesn't advertise that it's self driving... Unless I'm completely wrong that they don't advertise that it's self-driving..

Everyone saying “darwin award” as if they’ve never done anything silly in their life that could have gotten them killed.

Hammock Dunes Place is a short street ending at a cul-de-sac - 11 mansions, it appears - in a gated community (no Google Street View), where one might expect 20 or 25 MPH speed limit.

Can anyone explain why a "smart" car like a Tesla doesn't have that super basic seat sensor, that cars have had for decades to tell if someone is not wearing a seat belt? If they do have one, then why did none of the genius' they employ think to connect that to the autopilot and add a simple script: "if driver seat sensor = negative, then, autopilot = deactivated"

You're not supposed to leave the driver seat, even with autopilot. For this exact reason.
