WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. transportation regulators will meet Feb. 25 to determine the probable cause of the 2018 fatal crash of a Tesla Inc TSLA.O vehicle in Mountain View, California, the National transportation Safety Board said in a statement.

The panel will review a 2017 Tesla Model X electric-powered whose driver was using advanced driver assistance features, or “autopilot,” and was killed in the crash, the NTSB said.
