    The first self-propelled vehicle is thought to have been a steam-powered military tractor, invented by Frenchman Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot (1725-1804) in 1769. This vehicle travelled at a speed of only 4 km/h (2.5 mph), but Cugnot still managed to drive one into a wall in 1771. He survived what may be described as the first automotive accident.
