Swiss Tesla accident: crash may have sparked battery fire

Tesla Bull Turns Bearish As Clouds Over Elon Musk Continue To Darken

While a Tesla spokesperson failed to comment following the accident, the company's co-founder Elon Musk took to Twitter to note that it was "super messed up" that the latest accident had garnered so much public attention, while accidents involving traditional cars "get nearly no coverage".

In one of those accidents, a woman in Utah broke her foot after she slammed into a truck when her vehicle allegedly ran a red light while it was in autopilot mode.

Tesla officials and Utah police wouldn't provide additional details Monday about the Friday evening crash that left the Tesla Model S driver with a broken ankle. Police said the Tesla driver, who was reportedly looking at her phone before the crash, was taken to hospital with a broken ankle, while the truck driver suffered whiplash. "An impact at that speed usually results in severe injury or death".

Tesla co-founder Elon Musk has slammed recent coverage of a road traffic collision involving one of his company's electric vehicles, which was reportedly on autopilot mode.

The National Transportation Safety Board said last week it was investigating a Tesla accident in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on 8 May that killed two teenagers and injured another - the agency's fourth active probe into Tesla crashes.

News of the crash came as a top Tesla official who had been the main technical contact with USA safety investigators left the company to join rival Waymo.

In his email to staff, Musk said Tesla was "flattening the management structure to improve communication", combining functions and trimming activities "not vital to the success of our mission" in the reorganisation.

Despite the rocky relationship between Tesla and the NTSB, agency spokesperson Keith Holloway said he's still uncertain as to whether the agency will open an investigation into the accident.

In a game of precious few clear-cut chances, Luke Shaw hit the post and Paul Pogba headed wide with United's best opening. West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic has expressed his desire to carry his good form for the Hammers into next season.

This can lead to the breakdown of the thermal balance of the system and the complete destruction of the batteries and the auto.

"To ensure that Tesla is well-prepared for the future, we have been undertaking a thorough reorganization of our company", Musk said in the memo, obtained by CNBC.

The change comes as Electrek reported on a company memo saying Tesla (TSLA) is poised to top Model 3 production numbers of 500 a day.

The Tesla's air bags were activated in the crash, South Jordan police Sgt. Samuel Winkler said.

"Witnesses indicated the Tesla Model S did not brake prior to impact", the statement said.

On Sunday, the N.T.S.B. said it needs Tesla to decode the data recorded by the vehicle. Autopilot, a form of advanced cruise control, handles some driving tasks and warns those behind the wheel they are always responsible for the vehicle's safe operation.

According to Tesla, it was the fault of the driver that caused the accident; the car's autopilot system was engaged only six seconds before the accident.
