A woman was arrested after her car automatically called police after an accident in Florida. Police in Port St. Lucie told local reporters they tracked down 57-year-old Cathy Bernstein after she allegedly hit a truck and then a van before fleeing the scene thanks to her car’s automatic safety feature.
The technology uses a series of sensors inside the car to monitor sudden changes in movement or if the airbags are deployed.
It then automatically calls emergency services and relays the make and model of the car – in this case, a Ford – the time and location of the accident.
