Tesla Model S Explodes After Crash Injures 3 People

The driver, Aleksey Tretyakov, 41, told Russian news outlet REN TV the vehicle was operating in Autopilot mode at the time of the crash.

However, this is not the first time that Tesla vehicles on Autopilot have crashed into other vehicles and exploded into flames. Shortly thereafter, the Tesla caught fire with the flames ultimately destroying the vehicle entirely.

Tesla, which has come under scrutiny by regulators following several accidents involving self-driving systems on its Model 3, has not yet commented on the incident. Incidentally, there were also two explosions that rattled the vehicle following the accident.

Footage shown on Russian News Channel Rossiya 24 showed that the only part of the auto remaining after the fire was the metal frame. Reuters reported that Tretyakov broke his legs and his kids suffered injuries.

Federal regulators also scolded Tesla chief executive Elon Musk previous year for making what they said were "misleading statements" on Tesla safety, including claiming that Tesla's Model 3 has the lowest probability of injury of any vehicle the federal government had tested.

As to the specifics of the crash, Tretyakov said he was driving at about 60 miles per hour when he abruptly collided with a tow truck that had escaped his line of sight for some reason. The speed limit on the ring road is 100 kilometres per hour. The lawsuit was filed in Northern California federal court and claimed fraud and sought class-action status for the possibly thousands of Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X owners all over the world who have experienced that the range of their older batteries unexpectedly curtailed by as much as 64 km or 40 miles.

"It was not on full-scale automatic control - in Model 3 there is the function "driver's assistant" only, so I was holding the wheel".
