BAY AREA, Calif. (KMPH) — The California Highway Patrol says it was made aware of a Tesla driving on a Bay Area street with a man riding in the back seat but nobody sitting in the driver's seat.

CHP received the report as third-hand information and the complaint is under investigation.

Safety for all who share our roadways is the primary concern of the CHP.

The CHP asks that if you see an unusual incident such as this occurring, that you immediately report it by dialing 9-1-1 for an officer to respond and an investigation to be conducted.

The sooner the incident is reported, the better the chances of an investigation being completed.

Anyone with more information on the case is asked to contact the CHP at (707) 917-4300.
