Last week's fatal Tesla Model X crash in Mountain View, California, occurred while the vehicle had Autopilot engaged, Tesla said in a Friday blog post. "Our hearts are with the family and friends who have been affected by this tragedy," the company said. The crash claimed the life of an Apple engineer, Walter Huang, according to the Bay Area's ABC 7 News.

The vehicle ran into a concrete lane divider at high speed. The crash, and a subsequent fire, fully destroyed the front of the vehicle.

Huang's family has told local television station ABC 7 that, before the fatal crash, Huang had taken the vehicle into the Tesla dealership complaining about problems with Autopilot.

Tesla says it can't find any record of this, however.
