Florida man died after his Tesla Model S crash

A man died after crashing a 2016 Tesla Model S into a tree in Miami, Florida.

Police estimated that the car was traveling between 75 and 90 mph. The posted speed limit was 50.

When an officer arrived a few minutes after the crash, the car was in flames, according to the police report, and “efforts to extract the driver were unsuccessful.”

“It was just a massive ball of fire. It’s not possible anyone could’ve saved whoever was in there,” one bystander told Local 10 News.

Electrek reports that witnesses say the door handles of the vehicle did not open and that the numerous airbags didn’t deflate.

is in trouble with SEC over another tweet

As first reported by Bloomberg, the US Securities and Exchange Commission asked a federal court to hold in contempt, saying he violated the terms of a deal with the agency.

After he reached a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last year over his now infamous “funding secured” tweet, he isn’t supposed to tweet about things that could impact markets and his publicly traded company without approval from Tesla.

On the same day of the original tweet, a few hours later, Musk amended his comment, clarifying that he meant 500,000 cars would be made on an “annualized production rate” based on 10,000 cars made per week.

In fact, he continues to tweet — he posted a meme as news broke about the SEC’s actions.

 and Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland just took over hosting PewDiePie‘s popular YouTube series Meme Review.

If you’re unfamiliar with Meme Review, the premise is basically to rate memes out of 10. Musk and Roiland were shown a mix of random memes, as well as memes featuring Musk himself.

The two are featured in the back half of the video, from 13:30 onward.

It’s the third time this booster has been launched and landed, and marks SpaceX’s 34th successful landing. The reuse of boosters is part of SpaceX’s plan to make spaceflight cheaper.

Fully self-driving Tesla in 2020

The Tesla CEO said the electric car maker’s full self-driving feature will be completed by the end of 2019. And by the end of 2020, he added, it will be so capable, you’ll be able to snooze in the driver’s seat while it takes you from your parking lot to wherever you’re going.

“I think we will be ‘feature-complete’ on full self-driving this year, meaning the car will be able to find you in a parking lot, pick you up, take you all the way to your destination without an intervention this year,” Musk said during a podcast interview with the money management firm ARK Invest, which is a Tesla investor. “I am certain of that. That is not a question mark.”
