Investigations Continue Into Tesla Collisions
SOUTH JORDAN, UT (TruckingNewsNow.com) — The investigation continues into a Friday crash involving a Tesla Model S and a fire truck in South Jordan, Utah.
In a Sunday media statement, Tesla officials say they do not know if the vehicle’s “autopilot” feature was engaged at the time of the wreck. Witnesses told South Jordan police that the Tesla “did not brake prior to impact.”
The Tesla drive, according to police, suffered a broken ankle.
Meantime, the deadly accident last week involving a Tesla in Fort Lauderdale is now a Federal investigation.
Two teens — Edgar Monserratt and Barrett Riley — were both killed when their Tesla Model S crashed into a wall on Seabreeze Blvd. and burst into flames.
The NTSB is investigating, stating that while the agency doesn’t traditionally involve itself with car accidents, investigators want to know why the car burned following impact.
