Tesla Model S crashes into truck in Utah

Elon Musk berates music streaming platforms for “crazy low payouts”

Tesla said it was "deeply saddened" by the accident and was working with local authorities to establish the cause. Witnesses said the vehicle "did not brake or take any action to avoid the collision" but the driver has since admitted to police that she had been looking at her phone prior to the collision.

South Jordan police reported the vehicle was going 60 miles per hour when it slammed into the back of a fire truck at a red light.

There was no indication the Tesla's driver was under the influence of any substance, and information on what the driver may have told investigators about the circumstances of the crash likely wouldn't be available before Monday, Winkler said by telephone.

A fire that caused the death of a German Tesla driver in the Swiss canton of Ticino on May 10th may have been caused by the battery, firefighters in the city of Bellinzona have suggested.

"What's actually unbelievable about this accident is that a Model S hit a fire truck at 60 m.p.h. and the driver only broke an ankle", he added.

Complicating Tesla's problems, however, have been reports of a series of recent crashes that have resulted in several deaths and injuries.

Community members, school board consider school closing, special-ed issues
A schedule for five followup meetings to take place in schools around the district will be released in the coming days. A school board could also decide to simply adopt what is called a contingency budget, which limits certain spending.

As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace and the thought of self-driving cars slowly starts to become a reality, consumers are leery of giving up total control of the wheel. The vehicle had a human safety driver but was in autonomous mode when the accident occurred, and Uber failed to reveal additional details.

A Tesla spokesperson told Newsweek on Tuesday: "Tesla has not yet received any data from the auto and thus does not know the facts of what occurred, including whether Autopilot was engaged".

The National Transportation Safety Board said it was not investigating the Utah crash. The 18 year-old driver slammed into a concrete wall, and the vehicle burst into flames, trapping the occupants inside. But the company has also found itself in the news because of a series of serious vehicle crashes, at least some of which appear to have occurred while they were operating in the semi-autonomous Autopilot mode.

Additionally, the NTSB is also looking into a 2016 accident in which the driver of a Tesla slammed into a tractor trailer and died. Tesla subsequently modified both the hardware and software used by the semi-autonomous system.

After a rough start to the week - Tesla shares closed down 3 per cent Monday after Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk announced a "thorough reorganization" - Jonas' latest call is further weighing on the stock today, with shares down 2.6 per cent in pre-market trading. "Approx 4X better than avg", Musk said. "A system that, on balance, saves lives & reduces injuries should be released".
