As Tesla has been working to ramp up assembly of its more affordable Model 3 sedan, the company has also been adding features to existing examples with its over the air software updates.

Information that police are hoping to glean from that data includes confirmation that the autopilot was engaged, whether or not the brakes were ever applied, how fast the vehicle was going and what, if any, warnings or alerts were issued by the autopilot system to the driver.

Everyone at Tesla is not only encouraged, but expected, to provide criticism and feedback to ensure that we're creating the best, safest cars on the road.

Tesla faces a slew of other issues, from increased skepticism over its finances to safety probes by regulators.

A USA traffic safety regulator on May 2 contradicted Tesla's claim that the agency had found that its Autopilot technology significantly reduced crashes.

"This is false", Musk wrote. WSJ fails to mention that Tesla is safest vehicle on road, which would make article ridiculous.

"These cars can't drive themselves, but it's too easy for consumers to think they can", says William Wallace, senior policy analyst for Consumers Union, the advocacy division of Consumer Reports. We see Tesla as trading near fair value with a balanced risk reward, and believe that is subject to extremely high levels of fundamental execution risk, market/funding risk, and a highly volatile share price.

The Tesla driver, who claimed to be using the autosteer feature, was transported to hospital with a broken right foot, while the driver of the vehicle that was hit was checked for injuries related to whiplash but not admitted for further checks. The driver admitted to police she was looking at her phone just prior to the crash, and Tesla does alert drivers using Autopilot that they need to be ready to take control of the auto at any moment.

The National Transport Safety Board is already investigating two fatal incidents involving Tesla vehicles.

Last week, the company confirmed that it was cooperating with Florida authorities after a collision involving its Model S resulted in the death of two teenagers.
