A photo released by the South Jordan Police Department shows a traffic collision involving a Tesla Model S sedan with a Fire Department mechanic truck. The 28-year-old driver of the auto told police in suburban Salt Lake City that the system was switched on and that she had been looking at her phone before the Friday evening crash. 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.
Responding to a user who indicated that Tesla's autopilot function still needs safety tweaking, Musk stated: "It certainly needs to be better & we work to improve it every day, but ideal is enemy of good".
Cantonal police in Ticino are not commenting on the fatal accident which is one of three incidents involving Tesla cars in recent days. "A collision at this speed usually results in serious injury or death", wrote Musk in his blog.

The board also shaved a mill off the tax rate previous year . "It would be an addition of around $311,000 in this year's budget". With the receipt of some additional state aid combined with funds from our reserves, the budget gap was reduced to $400,000.
"What's actually incredible about this accident is that a Model S hit a fire truck at 60 miles per hour and the driver only broke an ankle", Musk tweeted.
The National Transportation Safety Board has not opened an investigation into the crash, spokesman Keith Holloway said, though it could decide to do so. Two teens were later killed, a third injured, in a Florida crash in which their Model S sedan's battery pack caught fire after a crash.
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 18 year-old driver slammed into a concrete wall, and the vehicle burst into flames, trapping the occupants inside. Tesla subsequently modified both the hardware and software used by the semi-autonomous system.

Yosef used the Hebrew word 'kushi, ' which although it was used in the Bible is now considered a derogatory term for black people. In the days before the embassy opening, however, Trump supporters reportedly felt vindicated by the relative lack of violence.
Additionally, the NTSB is also looking into a 2016 accident in which the driver of a Tesla slammed into a tractor trailer and died. In one instance, a Model X operating in Autopilot mode crashed into a California freeway barrier, killing the driver.
In April, Musk was asked by "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, "what's the goal of having autopilot if you still have to put your hands on the wheel?" In a memo sent to employees, Musk noted he was "flattening (the company's) management structure to improve communications", while shifting away from "activities that are not vital to the success of our mission". It is unclear if it will now investigate the Utah incident, as well. According to police Sergeant Sam Winkler of the police Department of the city of South George, the result of the accident were crumpled front part for electric vehicle and only a broken leg for the driver.
