Federal safety investigators say they’re displeased with Tesla Inc.’s disclosures about the March 23 crash involving one of its vehicles that killed a California driver.

The electric-car maker run by billionaire Elon Musk said in a blog post late Friday that computer logs recovered from the Model X driven by Wei Huang, 38, show he didn’t have his hands on the steering wheel for six seconds before the sport utility vehicle collided with a highway barrier and caught fire. The driver had “about five seconds and 150 meters of unobstructed view” of the divider and an already-crushed crash cushion that he collided with, according to the company.
