Watch Self-Driving Tesla Car Catch Fire and Explode After Collision in Moscow

In March, a Tesla owner in Florida fatally crashed his Model 3 into a semi truck.

This time, the incident took place in Moscow.

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.

Hong Kong protests continue into a tenth week
The firm is facing a boycott call in China, and its shares dropped more than four per cent in Hong Kong trade on Monday. And it said on Saturday that it had fired two airport ground staff, without specifying why.

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.
