3 injured as Tesla goes up in flames & explodes on Moscow freeway (VIDEOS) A father and two kids suffered serious injuries after their Tesla S crashed into a tow truck on a freeway and caught fire, due to an alleged autopilot malfunction.

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. The driver, director general of investment fund Arikapital Alexey Tretyakov, was hospitalized, while two of his children, who were also with him in the vehicle, suffered minor injuries.

Footage shown on Russian News Channel Rossiya 24 showed that the only part of the auto remaining after the fire was the metal frame. The Tesla is reportedly believed to have been on Autopilot mode at the time of the accident.

Raiders WR Antonio Brown in "breach of contract" over helmet issue
Brown has been using the same model helmet for nine years now, and he wants to continue using it. I'd hate to be the NFL. "They don't certify equipment that's old than 10 years".

The US's top automobile safety regulator has issued at least five subpoenas since previous year seeking information about crashes involving Tesla vehicles, according to Reuters.

It is not clear whether Mr Tretyakov's vehicle automatically slowed itself before colliding with the truck.

"I was going along Moscow ring road in the left lane with a speed of 100kph (62mph) and did not notice a parked GAZelle tow truck", he said. Some Tesla owners bought higher models since they provide greater range, they claimed that Tesla removed this with the software update which resulted to devaluing their tesla cars, limiting the distance their vehicles can travel and forcing them to recharge their vehicles more frequently.

All three escaped the vehicle before the blast. The automaker also insists that its electric vehicles are much less likely to catch on fire than gas-powered ones.

The company could not immediately be reached for comment outside of normal United States business hours.
