Tesla received criticism for a statement it released after the crash, relaying details of the crash and appearing to blame the driver.

“The driver had received several visual and one audible hands-on warning earlier in the drive and the driver’s hands were not detected on the wheel for six seconds prior to the collision,” the company said in a statement.

Shares of Tesla were down slightly to US$299 late Thursday afternoon.
