Elon Musk reveals new details about how Tesla is restructuring

Elon Musk poses with a Tesla outside the company’s factory in Silicon Valley October 2011

The Tesla Model S crashed into the truck at 60 miles per hour (97 kph) apparently without braking before impact, according to police in South Jordan, a suburb of Salt Lake City.

The tech tycoon went on to praise the safety of the Model S, saying that it was "amazing" the driver only broke her ankle in the accident and that "an impact at that speed usually results in severe injury or death".

"It's super messed up that a Tesla crash resulting in a broken ankle is front page news and the ~40,000 people who died in US auto accidents alone in past year get nearly no coverage", he said in a tweet.

In the most recent incident over the weekend, a Utah woman slammed into the back of a local fire department vehicle while her Tesla Model S' semi-autonomous Autopilot feature was engaged. The driver of the fire truck was evaluated for whiplash but was not checked into the hospital.

Responding to a user who indicated that Tesla's autopilot function still needs safety tweaking, Musk stated: "It certainly needs to be better & we work to improve it every day, but ideal is enemy of good".

As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace and the thought of self-driving cars slowly starts to become a reality, consumers are leery of giving up total control of the wheel.

In March, an Arizona pedestrian was killed by a self-driving Uber auto, in the first death of its kind.

The NTSB said last week it was investigating a Tesla accident in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on May 8 that killed two teenagers and injured another - the agency's fourth active probe into crashes of the company's electric vehicles.

A United States traffic safety regulator on May 2 contradicted Tesla's claim that the agency had found that its Autopilot technology significantly reduced crashes. But the company has also found itself in the news because of a series of serious vehicle crashes, at least some of which appear to have occurred while they were operating in the semi-autonomous Autopilot mode.

Tesla's stock price slipped Monday following another autopilot crash, this time in Utah, which the NTSB said it would investigate alongside its other now open investigation into the fatal crash of a Model X in California in March.

Lois Lane actress dies
Kidder had struggled with bipolar disorder during her life, which was the cause for a highly-publicized manic episode in 1996. She was married and divorced three times and is survived by her only child, daughter Maggie, and three children.

Over the past few months, the NTSB has begun investigating several incidents linked to Tesla's cars.

In March, a Tesla Model X SUV crashed on a California highway, killing the driver, and investigators are looking into the performance of the semi-autonomous driving system in that crash.

Waymo, Google's self-driving vehicle spinoff, confirmed that Matthew Schwall had joined the company.

"It certainly needs to be better and we work to improve it every day, but flawless is the enemy of good", Musk tweeted. "A system that, on balance, saves lives & reduces injuries should be released".
