Tesla Model S crashes into truck in Utah

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that was the real story - the vehicle's safety.

According to an email seen by Electrek, Musk is going to "flatten the management structure", trimming operations and combining roles to make things more efficient.

If Apple buys Tesla, they will be able to use their considerable resources and ability to roll out products to a huge population in order to pull Tesla back from, the brink of destruction and give us more accessible self driving cars.

Following several fatal accidents involving activated Autopilot, Tesla has reaffirmed the company's warning that drivers must pay attention to the road and be able to take control of the vehicle in an instant.

Investors are clearly getting exhausted of boisterous statements from Tesla and Musk as they are not yet seeing much substance in these. It is our view that the challenges in ramping up Model 3 production reflect fundamental issues of vehicle design, manufacturing process, and automation levels that can weigh against the profitability of the vehicle. Tesla is at a critical juncture as it tries to fix an inauspicious launch of the Model 3 sedan, a mid-market auto crucial to its success and future profitability that has been plagued by early production problems.

"It certainly needs to be better and we work to improve it every day, but flawless is the enemy of good", Musk tweeted.

A Model S owner has told police that Autopilot was engaged when she crashed into a parked firetruck in Utah last week. We've explored many technologies and opted for the combination of a hands-on-wheel torsion sensor with visual and audio alerts, and we will of course continue to evaluate new technologies as we evolve the Tesla fleet over time. "Approx 4X better than avg", Musk said.

The executive cites NHTSA numbers pointing to an automotive fatality every 85 million miles driven in 2017.

The Tesla's air bags were activated in the crash, South Jordan police Sgt. Samuel Winkler said. This is the fourth active electromobile accident investigation of the popular company.

Apple has long sought to get into the self driving vehicle industry and those dreams could finally come to fruition if Apple buys Tesla.

Tesla said it had not yet received vehicle data and did not yet know the facts, including whether Autopilot was engaged.

Since the driver was not fully focused on the road, it is unlikely that the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and National Transport Safety Board (NTSB) will investigate the accident, the newspaper says.
