Meantime, the deadly accident last week involving a Tesla in Fort Lauderdale is now a Federal investigation.

AS per the police statement, the Airbags were activated in the crash.

According to South Jordan Police, the Tesla was traveling southbound on Bangerter Highway (SR-154) around 6:30 p.m. before it crashed into the truck that had been stopped at the red light at 10400 South. The road was wet after rain.

While the truck driver was not injured in the accident, the Tesla's driver, a 28-year-old female, suffered a broken ankle.

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.
