Tesla Vehicle Involved in Severe Salt Lake City Crash
SALT LAKE CITY, UT- Breitbart.com writes that a severe collision occurred in Salt Lake City after a Tesla went through a red light at an intersection in Salt Lake City. Three people suffered critical injuries in the accident and the resulting car fire. It is not yet known whether the vehicle’s autopilot was engaged when the incident took place.*
According to police, a Tesla was speeding westbound through the city’s downtown when it collided with another car. The impact led to the Tesla’s batteries igniting and setting the vehicle on fire. First responders contacted a hazardous materials team to extinguish the exploding battery fire. Investigators are still trying to understand the cause of the crash but stated that they do not believe that driver impairment was a factor. Two men in the Tesla and a female driver in the other vehicle all suffered severe injuries.
This wreck comes shortly after another Tesla collision killed two people in California. In that incident, a Tesla also ran through a red light and then struck a Honda Civic, tragically killing the two occupants in the Civic. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating that collision and has not stated whether Tesla’s Autopilot system was engaged.
