Feb. 6, 2019—A Tesla Model 3 owner credits Autopilot for saving his life as he claims the driver-assist system automatically swerved out of the way to avoid another vehicle when traveling at highway speed, reported Electrek.

Sunday afternoon, a man who simply gave the name of Amit was driving his Model 3 on I-95 in Connecticut using Tesla’s latest Navigate on Autopilot when a vehicle quickly moved into his lane, setting him on a collision course with the car. He claims that the vehicle managed to get out of the way before he could do anything.

Amit believes that he didn’t take control of the vehicle himself until it was back in the center of the lane. The incident was recorded on his TeslaCam dashcam feature.
