Actual causes of crashes blamed in autopilot

I have read about crashes allegedly caused by autopilot where a Tesla ran into a parked car or some other stationary object. I often wonder weather the driver had his foot on the accelerator and thereby prevented the autopilot from braking. My suspicions increased when I discovered a class action lawsuit alleging that the Tesla automobile was defective because it allowed the driver to prevent the autopilot from braking by depressing the accelerator. Does anyone have any statistics about how many of these autopilot crashes were actually caused by the driver preventing autopilot from braking.
