U.S. safety agency probes ‘violent’ Tesla crash in Detroit

News: U.S. safety agency probes ‘violent’ Tesla crash in Detroit.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Auto Safety Authority said Monday it was investigating an accident in Detroit on Thursday that resulted in a Tesla being wedged under an articulated truck, reportedly leaving a woman in critical condition.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Monday it was “aware of the violent crash that occurred in Detroit on March 11 with a Tesla and a tractor-trailer. We set up a SCI (Special Crash Investigation) team to investigate the crash. “

NHTSA previously launched around a dozen SCI teams to investigate Tesla accidents that may be related to the vehicle’s advanced autopilot driver assistance system. It’s not clear whether autopilot could have been a factor in the Detroit crash.

Tesla didn’t immediately comment.
