NHTSA sends team to Detroit to investigate Tesla-semi crash, driver charged

The driver of a Tesla SUV that crashed into a semi last week in Detroit is being charged with reckless driving causing serious injury, the Detroit Police Department said Tuesday.

The police will meet with the representatives from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration later this week because the agency is investigating the crash of the 2021 Tesla Model Y and a tractor trailer that took place last Thursday on the city’s southwest side.
