A Tesla crashed into a Florida home Friday, killing two people and seriously injuring three others, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Officials said the car was reportedly not on autopilot when the 43-year-old driver sped through a stop sign, hit a curb that sent it airborne, and later crashed into the home.

They said a 69-year-old woman who resided at the Palm Harbor home was killed.
