According to Fox 13 News, a woman is in the hospital after her Tesla Model S collided with the back of a Unified Fire Authority mechanic truck on Bangerter Highway.

The Tesla was traveling southbound on Bangerter Highway (SR-154) around 6:30 p.m. before it crashed into the back of the truck stopped at the red light at 10400 South.

Police are still investigating whether or not the car was using the autopilot feature at the time. “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 Department.
