    Self-parking Volvo ploughs into journalists after owner neglects to pay for extra feature that stops cars crashing into people
    The video has horrified many — but it’s not clear that anything actually went wrong

    A video showing a car attempting to park but actually plowing into journalists might have resulted from the Volvo’s owner not paying an extra fee to have the car avoid pedestrians.

    The video, taken in the Dominican Republic, shows a Volvo XC60 reversing itself, waiting, and then driving back into pedestrians at speed. The horrifying pictures went viral and were presumed to have resulted from a malfunction with the car — but the car might not have had the ability to recognise a human at all.

    The accident may have happened because owners have to pay for a special feature known as “pedestrian detection functionality”, which costs extra.
