Tesla Model S Catches Fire After Hitting Tow Truck In Moscow

The reports said that the vehicle was driven on a busy motorway by 41-year-old Russian businessman Alexey Tretyakov. Tretyakov and his two children were taken to the hospital after the accident.

This is not the first report of a Tesla on Autopilot crashing into stopped vehicles. A 2016 incident in China saw the car hit a street sweeper and cause a fatality, the reports said.
