Authorities are still investigating and have contacted the National Transportation Safety Board, The Associated Press reported.

Tesla's main technical contact with USA safety investigators, Matthew Schwall, has left the electric carmaker for Alphabet's self-driving unit Waymo, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday, citing people familiar the decision.

Police Sgt. Samuel Winkler said the car's airbags were activated and the vehicle driver suffered a broken ankle but the truck driver didn't require treatment. It is even not clear yet if the NTSB will investigate or not.

"Tesla has not yet received any data from the vehicle and thus does not know the facts of what occurred, including whether Autopilot was engaged".

Witnesses indicated the Tesla Model S did not brake before impact.

While the truck driver was not injured in the accident, the Tesla's driver, a 28-year-old female, suffered a broken ankle.

The incident occurred in the Salt Lake City suburb of South Jordan on Friday, when the Tesla S slammed into a fire department's mechanics truck while it was stopped at a red light.

There was no indication the Tesla's driver was under the influence of any substance that could have impaired her driving, according to police.

Airbags were activated in the crash. The roads were wet in a light rain. But drivers are instructed to keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes and attention on the road. 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.
