When a Tesla-powered electric car crashes into an NJ bus
A bus was forced to pull over for a short time after a Tesla Model S sedan collided with a NJ Transit bus in Newark, New Jersey, on Sunday.
The crash happened at approximately 8:30 p.m.
The Model S hit the front of the bus, and a passenger was thrown to the ground.
The driver of the Tesla, a former Tesla employee named Mark Vail, was not hurt in the crash.
The Tesla driver is expected to be released from the hospital.
The bus is owned by the New Jersey Transit Authority, which operates the New York City Transit system.
It was not immediately clear what caused the collision.
The NJ Transit Authority issued a statement saying, “We are deeply saddened by this incident and are investigating the cause.
We will continue to investigate and work with the New Brunswick Police Department to gather the facts.
We thank the passengers for their patience during this time of loss.”
The Model 3 is a vehicle designed to compete with the Tesla Model Y sedan.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that the Model 3 will hit 60 mph (100 kph) in 2.5 seconds.
The Musk’s comments come on the heels of a video showing the Model S hitting a school bus in Fremont, California, in July 2017.
The video sparked a firestorm of criticism and prompted a federal investigation into the accident.
Tesla’s chief technology officer, JB Straubel, told investors on a conference call in May that the company is looking to launch a vehicle with the same type of technology as the Model X. Tesla is expected begin production of the Model Y at its Fremont factory in 2021.
In the past year, Tesla has launched its own electric vehicle, the Model K, and unveiled a new SUV, the Tesla Roadster.
The company has been aggressively pursuing autonomous vehicles, as well as a fleet of self-driving trucks.
The Federal Aviation Administration has opened an investigation into a possible Tesla crash, and the NTSB is investigating the crash in New Jersey.
The NTSB has not released a report on the crash, though it is expected that the NTSBs preliminary findings will be released later this month.
