News of the crash came as a top Tesla official who had been the main technical contact with US safety investigators left the company to join rival Waymo.

Police said it's not immediately known whether the Tesla's autopilot driving system was in use when it rear-ended a truck apparently without braking before impact at approximately 60 miles per hour.

Tesla and Waymo did not immediately respond to emailed requests for comment on Sunday.

Police said they had been in contact with the National Transportation Safety Board about the crash.

Schwall, who had been the director of field performance engineering at Tesla, exited the company amid the NTSB probe into multiple crashes involving the electric vehicles, the report added.
