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.
