Carl Hunter was driving his Tesla Model S home on a highway northeast of Seattle last month. The Autopilot system was on and he was looking at his phone, Hunter later told police. He heard a bang as the vehicle lurched forward and collided with a motorcycle.

“I’m not sure how it happened,” Hunter said as he called 911 from the scene. “But I’m going crazy.”
