While a Tesla spokesperson failed to comment following the accident, the company's co-founder Elon Musk took to Twitter to note that it was "super messed up" that the latest accident had garnered so much public attention, while accidents involving traditional cars "get nearly no coverage".
The driver of a Tesla electric auto which crashed into the back of a fire engine on Saturday says she had the vehicle's semi-autonomous Autopilot mode engaged and was looking at her phone when the accident occurred.

The motorist suffered a broken ankle and was taken to a hospital while a firefighter escaped unharmed.
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. In March, a Tesla Model X SUV crashed on a California highway, killing the driver, and investigators are looking into the performance of the semi-autonomous driving system in that crash.
In his email to staff, Musk said Tesla was "flattening the management structure to improve communication", combining functions and trimming activities "not vital to the success of our mission" in the reorganisation.
According to sources, Mr. Schwall decision to quit his job is not related to N.T.S.B.'s investigations regarding Tesla's Autopilot System.
Witnesses said the Tesla did not brake prior to impact.
"We've been doing a thorough search of our service records, and we can not find anything suggesting that the customer ever complained to Tesla about the performance of Autopilot", Tesla said in a statement.
Tesla has said the autopilot feature in its vehicles only handles some driving tasks. It was unknown at the time of the accident whether the driver was operating on the Autopilot feature.
To use the feature, select a time for your phone to enter "Do Not Disturb" mode; the phone's screen will shift into grayscale. Google a year ago introduced a free utility called Family Link that lets parents control their children's Android use.
