WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US auto safety regulators announced Thursday that they have opened 30 investigations into Tesla (NASDAQ:) crashes with 10 deaths since 2016, suspected of advanced driver assistance systems.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a list of accident details that are being reviewed by their Special Crash Investigations programs.

The agency, which had previously confirmed some specific Tesla crash investigations, had previously not released Reuters a full list of all Tesla crashes investigated that were suspected of involving Tesla’s autopilot system.

Of the 30 Tesla crashes, the NHTSA excluded Tesla’s autopilot in three and published reports of two of the crashes.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
