Assisted Driver Systems Wreaking Havoc – Fatal Crash Probe Involving Ford Mustang

According to Insurance Journal, Assisted Driver Systems are under fire again, but this time, it involves a fatal crash between a Ford F.N Mustang Mach-E and two additional vehicles on I-95 in Philadelphia, PA that occurred on March 3, 2024.

 

Ford offers their advanced, hands-free driving system coined, “BlueCruise,” that operates on 97% of U.S. and Canadian highways that have no intersections or traffic signals.

 

Insurance Journal stated that, “The NTSB (U.S. National Transportation Safety Board)

said it is investigating in coordination with the Pennsylvania State Police, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment,” and that Ford stated, “it was recently made aware of this incident by the NTSB and has informed the National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA) as required.”

 

This busy section of I-95 (that we are unfortunately familiar with) was closed for several hours as a result of the fatal accident, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

 

These incidents seem to be on the rise, as the NTSB has conducted several investigations into crashes involving driver assistance systems, which of course include Telsa’s Autopilot.

 

We are keeping an eye on this trend!
