U.S. safety agency to weigh in on Tesla-truck crash in New Jersey

The U.S. auto safety agency have said that it will collect information about an accident in which a Tesla vehicle crashed into a tractor-trailer in New Jersey.

The Tesla driver, a 44-year-old, said he had his cruise control on “when he momentarily lost focus on the roadway” and drove his car under the trailer on Monday morning, according to a statement from the South Brunswick Township Police Department.

The Tesla was destroyed in the crash, but the driver received minor injuries.

The NHTSA said earlier this month that it had opened 27 investigations into crashes of Tesla vehicles, 23 of which remain active, and at least three of the crashes occurred in recent weeks.
