Police Suspect Autopilot Was at Fault in Friday's Tesla Crash in Utah

Chowdhry said in his analyst note Monday that Tesla is improving the Model 3 production rate, and "it has a lot to do with Elon Musk getting hands-on and sleeping on the factory floor for nearly two weeks".

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a memo on Monday that the company is reorganizing in an effort aimed at "flattening management".

While driverless technology is expected to make the roads significantly safer by reducing human error and crashes, companies like Tesla are now in a transition period that some experts say has created unique risks.

Investigators want to find whether the Tesla electric vehicle had the Autopilot mode on when the Model S rammed into a fire truck stopped at a red light on Friday.

"Tesla has not yet received any data from the vehicle and thus does not know the facts of what occurred, including whether Autopilot was engaged", the company said in a statement on Monday.

The woman broke her right foot, Winkler said, while the truck driver was checked for whiplash but not hospitalized. After the vehicle manufacturer attributed blame for a March fatality in a Model X to human error, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)booted Tesla from the accident investigation.

On Wednesday, the National Transportation Safety Board would investigate a Tesla accident in Florida, however, two teenagers killed in that accident and some injured.
