A Tesla vehicle which can be driven semi-autonomously - although drivers must keep their hands on the wheel - has crashed into a fire department truck stopped at a red light. The truck driver fire brigade was not injured.

Tesla Inc's main technical contact with USA safety investigators, Matthew Schwall, has left the electric carmaker for Alphabet Inc's self-driving unit Waymo, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday, citing people familiar the decision.

The Tesla Model S was moving at 60 miles per hour when it hit a truck that was stopped at a red light around 6:30 p.m., the South Jordan Police Department said.

The Tesla drive, according to police, suffered a broken ankle.

An investigation has been opened after a Tesla Model S, which can be driven autonomously, crashed into the back of a fire truck in Utah.

There was no indication the Tesla's driver was under the influence of any substance, and information on what the driver may have told investigators about the circumstances of the crash likely wouldn't be available before Monday, Winkler said by telephone.

'Lethal Weapon' star Clayne Crawford to be recast pending show's renewal
FOX has chose to renew its action drama series Lethal Weapon for a third season, but it's not exactly that cut and dry. The series' ratings were enough to score a renewal, however the behavior of Clayne Crawford put the show in jeopardy.

Police said they had been in contact with the National Transportation Safety Board about the crash, however the agency's spokesman did not know if they would get involved with the crash.

That feature uses cameras, radar, and computers to maintain speed, changes lanes, and stop.

No injuries were reported to the driver of the Unified Fire Authority vehicle.
