THAT WAS CLOSE: Tesla's Model S autopilot saves a driver from what could have been a serious crash. This video shows the Model S swerving to avoid a truck. According to uploader Joshua Brown: "I was driving down the interstate and you can see the boom lift truck in question on the left side of the screen on a joining interstate road. Once the roads merged, the truck tried to get to the exit ramp on the right and never saw my Tesla. I actually wasn't watching that direction and Tessy (the name of my car) was on duty with autopilot engaged. I became aware of the danger when Tessy alerted me with the 'immediately take over' warning chime and the car swerving to the right to avoid the side collision."
