The U.S. automotive recovery bureau in Texas was “not trained” and was “unable to fully recover a vehicle from the crash of a Honda Accord,” according to a new report.
The report by the Federal Highway Administration, which is charged with investigating accidents, found that the Bureau of Motor Vehicles failed to identify the car as a Honda or Toyota vehicle, despite the car’s size and condition.
The accident occurred April 12, 2016, on Interstate 40 between Austin and Dallas, the report said.
The vehicle was a Honda Civic that had driven itself on a narrow street in the area, the FAA report said, adding that the vehicle’s windshield was shattered, and the rear-view mirror had been smashed.
The agency said the vehicle was not registered to anyone in the U.A.T.A., a federally-recognized agency that is responsible for investigating crashes involving the vehicles of motor vehicles.
The FAA is also investigating a similar crash that occurred in August 2016 near El Paso, Texas, which killed a woman and injured five others.
The incident also killed an 8-year-old boy.
The investigation found that at the time of the accident, the Honda Civic was still under the manufacturer’s warranty.
A Honda spokeswoman told the Austin American-Statesman that the Accord was “still undergoing testing” and that “the recall is not expected to be implemented until the next certification.”
Honda has since said it has a recall of the Accord for the same issue.
The company also has a car recall for the problem.
