Ford Mustang Mach-E Collision Will Be Investigated By NTSB

Though some of its rivals have faced a few high-profile incidents in recent years, Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free highway driving assist feature and other advanced driver-assistance systems have thus far earned little more than praise, for the most part, outperforming rival systems in multiple independent tests. However, federal safety regulators continue to revise testing procedures for ADAS systems amid concerns over how they perform at night and in other types of situations, such as when a vehicle is traveling at higher speeds. Now, a recent deadly crash involving a Ford Mustang Mach-E is under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), according to KSAT.

This particular incident occurred in San Antonio, Texas recently when the driver of a Ford Mustang Mach-E crashed into a Honda CR-V, which was reportedly stopped in the middle lane of of Interstate 10 and didn’t have its lights on. Sadly, the crash resulted in the driver of the CR-V being taken to the hospital, where they wound up passing away from the injuries they sustained as a result of the impact, though the Mach-E driver wasn’t hurt. Authorities haven’t yet revealed too many details about the crash – including whether or not the Mach-E driver was using BlueCruise at the time – however.

“NTSB is investigating this fatal crash due to its continued interest in advanced driver assistance systems and how vehicle operators interact with these technologies,” an NTSB spokesperson told KSAT. “A team of investigators from the NTSB’s Special Investigations Branch of the Office of Highway Safety will travel to San Antonio to examine the wreckage and collect information about the accident site and sequence of events leading to the collision.”

“We were recently made aware of this incident and extend our deepest sympathies to those involved,” Ford said in a statement. “The complete facts of this event are not yet clear. Ford reported this incident to NHTSA as soon as we were made aware, and we are actively researching all available information. Safety is a top priority for all of us at Ford, and we will collaborate fully with any resulting investigation.”

    I have a 2007 mustang and I would never buy an electric one. What an ugly car it is and it wares the horse badge undeservingly……. Paul

      It’s a disgrace to the Mustang name.
