Could this be some situation where the vehicle's advanced feature failed to work as intended and contributed to someone's death? Of course, but it could also just be driver error. It's even possible this situation was completely unavoidable by man or machine. At the end of the day, jumping to conclusions isn't going to get the victim's loved ones the answers or the help they deserve. That will likely require having experienced professionals look into the details so that nothing important slips through the cracks.
