Two men die when a Tesla vehicle, believed to be operating without anyone in the driver's seat, crashes into a tree and bursts into flames.

Strange. Further investigation by police and Tesla needed. This particular vehicle did not have the self-drive pack and even so should not operate without someone at the steering wheel.  Perhaps the car had been unofficially modded.  Interesting.

I couldn't work out if this was simple natural selection either.

"I couldn't work out if this was simple natural selection either."

;-) It's a strange case. We just don't know enough to draw conclusions. 

The latest Hondas are getting ever closer to driving themselves. They read speed limits, keep the car in its chosen motorway lane, prevent acceleration if it's deemed dangerous, keep the car at the speed of other traffic in the chosen lane and slow or stop the car if traffic ahead slows or stops. It also automatically dips its headlights at night if it detects an oncoming vehicle. The driver has to opt in, and is still responsible for what the car does,-important for insurance.  However, it's not hard to see these 'driver aids' being used to help a car drive itself in a year or two's time.
