A new Reddit clip shows a Tesla using the Smart Summon feature at a Cirrus event crash into a small private jet worth millions.

Autopilot didn’t work, says Futurism.

Slow Ride

Everybody knows better than to park next to the most expensive car in the lot. If you ding the door, you’re gonna have to pay.

That’s what makes it so incredulous one Tesla owner used the Smart Summon feature, which is supposed to let Teslas navigate parking lots on autopilot, but ended up crashing the driverless vehicle into a private jet worth millions.

A clip of the incident was posted to Reddit earlier this week and went viral, getting attention in dozens of media sites.

The 16-second clip shows a Tesla driving slowly toward, at, and then under the tail of a Vision Jet. The plane rotates almost completely around as the vehicle continues what may be the world’s slowest and only car-on-plane crash.

“I was at a Cirrus event and someone tried to summon their Tesla past a $3,500,000 Vision jet,” the original poster captioned the video, shown below.
