Tesla has been in an uncomfortable spotlight recently following the fatal crash of a Model X on March 23rd.

Tesla's Autopilot system was on in the car, and it steered the vehicle straight into a highway barrier, killing the driver. Now, according to The Wall Street Journal, Tesla has withdrawn from a formal cooperation agreement with the National Transportation Safety Board over the company's public release of crash details.

The company has been on the defensive since the accident. A week after the crash, Tesla issued an update confirming that its semiautonomous driving system was engaged in the vehicle at the time of the accident. However, the company also stated that the driver's hands had not been "on the wheel for six seconds prior to the collision," despite multiple visual and audio warnings. Tesla's Autopilot is semiautonomous and is not intended to be used without hands on the wheel.
