Police probe whether Autopilot feature was on in Tesla crash

A traffic collision is seen involving a Tesla Model S sedan with a Fire Department mechanic truck stopped at a red light in South Jordan Utah on Friday

Mr Musk said the restructuring plans involve "flattening the management structure to improve communication", as well as trimming activities "not vital to the success of our mission".

This might be a coincidence, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The company closed at a share value of $301.06 on Friday.

Senior Tesla executives have departed or cut back work.

Winkler said investigators were working with Tesla technicians to gather and review data stored in the vehicle.

A Tesla Model S that crashed into a stopped fire truck at high speed was operating in Autopilot mode, the driver of the vehicle told Utah police officials. Picture taken May 11, 2018. She "looked up just as the accident was about to happen", he said.

He added that "the number of sort of third-party contracting companies that we're using has really gotten out of control, so we're going to scrub the barnacles on that front".

Tesla Inc shares were trading at $291.97 per share on Monday afternoon, down $9.09 (-3.02%).

However, he added , "We love when fans yell and scream on Twitter , but we hope that transfers and they watch the show". This strategy would work best with a non-serialized show that doesn't have much of a barrier to entry for new viewers.

Tesla faces a variety of other issues.

Investors gave Mr Musk some rare criticism after the call in which he referred to one analyst as a "boring bonehead".

Regulators are also looking into the performance of the Autopilot system in the March crash of a Tesla Model X SUV that crashed on a California highway.

Police are "currently working with technicians from Tesla to gather and review data stored within the vehicle, which may take several days", said Winkler.

The Tesla Autopilot system uses various sensors, cameras, and radar to provide semi-autonomous driving to drivers. However Musk has since denied those claims by saying, "This is false". WSJ fails to mention that Tesla is safest auto on road, which would make article ridiculous.

Tesla's record of miles driven could not be confirmed by Reuters. Tesla Autopilot does not prevent all accidents - such a standard would be impossible - but it makes them much less likely to occur. Witnesses told police the driver of the Tesla did not brake or make any attempt to avoid the collision.

The South Jordan Police Department told news outlets on Monday that the driver, a 28-year-old woman, had been looking at her phone before the crash, during which the Tesla was traveling at highway speeds.

In its report about the 2016 crash, the National Transportation Safety Board said, "The way that the Tesla Autopilot system monitored and responded to the driver's interaction with the steering wheel was not an effective method of ensuring driver engagement".
