In one of those accidents, a woman in Utah broke her foot after she slammed into a truck when her auto allegedly ran a red light while it was in autopilot mode. The Tesla's driver suffered a broken right ankle, and the driver of the Unified Fire Authority mechanic truck did not require treatment, Winkler said. "An impact at that speed usually results in severe injury or death".
The National Transportation Safety Board said it was not investigating the Utah crash, and Tesla said it had not yet received vehicle data and did not yet know the facts, including whether Autopilot was engaged. The driver of the fire truck was evaluated for whiplash but was not checked into the hospital. While Tesla management believes the Model 3's margin falling below the company's 25-per-cent target will prove to be temporary, Jonas said the headwinds are more structural.
The National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB) spokesperson Keith Holloway said it has not opened up an investigation into the crash, but might yet do so.
