People don't like to be the reason something bad happens. They lose even more interest if it's something really bad, perhaps even criminally bad. With that in mind, it's no surprise that some drivers have tried to blame their accidents on Tesla Autopilot. There were a couple of incidents (maybe more) where people seemed to accidentally hit "drive" instead of "reverse" or "brake," then took out part of a wall and crashed their Tesla as a result, and then blamed the whole thing on Autopilot...
