DETROIT (AP) — Eleven additional people were in crashes involving vehicles using automated driving systems four months earlier this year. According to newly released government data, this is part of an alarming pattern of incidents linked to the technology.

Ten of the deaths involved vehicles made by Tesla, though it is unclear from the data whether the technology was at fault or whether driver error might have been responsible.

The 11th death involved a Ford pickup truck. The deaths included four crashes involving motorcycles that occurred during the spring and summer: two in Florida and one each in California and Utah.
