Ford Mustang Mach-E Collision Spurs New NTSB Investigation

As Ford Authority reported last month, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recently opened an investigation into a fatal crash involving a Ford Mustang Mach-E in San Antonio, Texas. While details surrounding that incident are a bit scant at the moment, we do know that the driver of that Ford Mustang Mach-E crashed into a Honda CR-V, which was reportedly stopped in the middle lane of the interstate 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. Now, the NTSB has announced that it will investigate another fatal crashing involving a Ford Mustang Mach-E that occurred in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as well.

“NTSB, in coordination with the Pennsylvania State Police, has opened a safety investigation into the March 3 collision between an electric-powered Ford Mustang Mach-E sport utility vehicle & two stationary passenger cars, a Hyundai Elantra & Toyota Prius, on I-95 in Philadelphia,” the agency announced via X.

It’s currently unclear if the Ford Mustang Mach-E involved in this incident was using the automaker’s BlueCruise hands-free driving assist feature at the time of the crash, but that is the case in the aforementioned incident in Texas. Ford has been made aware of the investigation, however, and has informed the National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA) as required, as is the case with all fatal crashes involving advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). “We are researching the events of March 3 and collaborating fully with both agencies to understand the facts,” the automaker said in a statement.

    Don’t blame the vehicle, blame the government and the safety agencies who mandate these safety features, I would take all these safety items of the vehicles and make people drive properly and they should make it impossible to use mobile phones while driving.
