Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to criticise media coverage of the Utah smash. "But that goes to the Tesla safety features ... that she was able to walk away with only the minor injuries that she did".

Among accidents to make headlines was a fiery March 23 crash in California that involved its "Autopilot" feature.

The driver of the Tesla may face charges for failing to maintain the safety of her vehicle, which would be a traffic infraction, according to police spokesman Sgt. Samuel Winkler.

Sam Winkler said the driver told police she was looking for an alternate route on her phone in the moments before the crash and only looked up just before impact.

Tesla is still dealing with the fallout from a Model X crash earlier this year that claimed the life of the driver.

The incident involving the Tesla Model S occurred on May 11 in South Jordan, Utah, when an unidentified 28-year-old female ran a red light and crashed into the back of another vehicle at 60 miles per hour.

Swiss firefighters have indicated the impact of a fatal crash involving a Tesla auto may have triggered a battery fire, causing the vehicle to go up in flames.

In one of those accidents, a woman in Utah broke her foot after she slammed into a truck when her vehicle allegedly ran a red light while it was in autopilot mode.

Tesla said it was "deeply saddened" by the accident and was working with local authorities to establish the cause. It is not known whether the autopilot function of the Tesla vehicle was activated at the time. We've explored many technologies and opted for the combination of a hands-on-wheel torsion sensor with visual and audio alerts, and we will of course continue to evaluate new technologies as we evolve the Tesla fleet over time. The NTSB investigation will no doubt cover this issue, but Tesla has yet to confirm any facts in this case.
