Federal officials in the United States said on Friday that they will investigate a fiery Tesla collision in South Florida that injured two individuals. A Tesla Model 3 is said to have left the road and crashed with a tree in South Florida on Monday. The US National Transportation Safety Board has stated that it will examine the Tesla Model 3's new technologies thoroughly. The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the functioning of the electric compact automobile as well as the post-crash fire that erupted and destroyed the vehicle.
This isn't the first time a Tesla automobile has made the wrong kind of news. Previously, numerous Tesla cars were involved in accidents in which the automaker's well-known Autopilot semi-autonomous driving aid system was blamed. The car's battery is said to have sparked fires in certain situations. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has examined 31 incidents involving cars using partially automated driver aid technologies in the previous five years. Tesla electric automobiles were involved in 25 of the instances. As a result, US government officials are investigating Tesla's technology even more thoroughly.
Tesla cars do not utilize gasoline, which might raise the risk of a large fire in the event of a collision. However, the battery in this US EV manufacturer's electric vehicles constantly poses a risk of fire. Tesla has even stated that any car, regardless of fuel source, can catch fire in a high-speed accident. It's unclear whether speed had a role in the recent Tesla collision in South Florida.
It's also unclear whether the car's semi-autonomous driving assistance system was turned on at the time of the accident. According to the reports, the NTSB will present its preliminary investigative report in 30 days.
