Woman slams into back of truck on Bangerter Highway

Police said it's not immediately known whether the Tesla's autopilot driving system was in use when it rear-ended a truck apparently without braking before impact at approximately 60 miles per hour.

The crash, in which the Tesla driver was injured, comes as federal safety agencies investigate the performance of Tesla's semi-autonomous driving system.

An investigation has been opened after a Tesla Model S, which can be driven autonomously, crashed into the back of a fire truck in Utah.

Sgt. Sam Winkler, South Jordan Police, said the crash happened at about 6:38 p.m. involving a Tesla Model S and a mechanic truck from the Unified Fire Authority at 10400 South Bangerter Highway.

AS per the police statement, the Airbags were activated in the crash.

Police Sgt. Samuel Winkler said the car's airbags were activated and the auto driver suffered a broken ankle but the truck driver didn't require treatment.

"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 road was wet after rain.

The former Tesla executive began at Waymo last Monday, where he joined the company's safety team led by former National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Deputy Administrator Ron Medford, WSJ said.

Tesla and Waymo did not immediately respond to emailed requests for comment on Sunday.

Police in Utah are investigating whether a fast-moving Tesla vehicle that rear-ended a fire truck on Friday was in autopilot mode.

Investigators are also examining the Autopilot system in that case.
