Two men died after a Tesla hit and tree and exploded into flames.
Two Texas men killed in Tesla with no-one in the driving seat. Officials said no-one was occupying the driving seat at the time of the accident.
The incident happened on Saturday night in Texas and the Tesla Model S was travelling at high speed.

One dead man was found in the passenger seat while the other was in the back seat of the vehicle.
Following a host of recent incidents Tesla have come under scrutiny for their semi-automated driving system.
