Default Another stupid Tesla Model S driver rear ends UFA truck

SOUTH JORDAN – A woman is in the hospital after her Tesla Model S collided
with the back of a Unified Fire Authority mechanic truck Friday night on
Bangerter Highway.

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.

While police are still investigating whether or not the car was using the
autopilot feature at the time, they say it does not appear any brakes were
applied before the accident.

“For unknown reasons, the Tesla failed to stop for the traffic at the red
light and ran into the back of the Unified Fire Authority vehicle at 60
miles per hour,” said Sergeant Samuel Winkler with the South Jordan Police

The 28-year-old female driver from Lehi was transported to a nearby
hospital with a broken ankle. Police say the driver of the UFA truck was
not injured and left later in the same truck.

South Jordan police are continuing to investigate the incident but say
they likely won’t have more information on the crash until next week.
