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

Police said they do not know if the autopilot feature was engaged.

South Jordan police said there was no indication the Tesla's driver on Saturday was under the influence of any substance. The Tesla's driver suffered a broken right ankle, and the driver of the Unified Fire Authority mechanic truck did not require treatment, Winkler said.

According to South Jordan Police, the Tesla was traveling southbound on Bangerter Highway (SR-154) around 6:30 p.m. before it crashed into the truck that had been stopped at the red light at 10400 South.

No injuries were reported to the driver of the Unified Fire Authority vehicle.

Police in a Salt Lake City suburb say it's not immediately known whether a Tesla Model S sedan's semi-autonomous Autopilot driving system was in use when it rear-ended a truck. Witnesses indicated the driver of the Tesla did not brake prior to impact.

Tesla's autopilot system uses cameras, radar and computers to maintain speed, change lanes and stop.

The NTSB and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are also examining a fiery crash last week involving a Tesla Model S that killed two teenagers in Fort Lauderdale. But perhaps even more concerning is the fires that have occurred in several of the crashes. ABC News learned from an investigative source that the battery of the vehicle caught fire again a week later after the auto was towed to an impound lot.

Police in South Jordan, Utah released images of the damaged Tesla Model S that crashed on Friday.

The NTSB is investigating, stating that while the agency doesn't traditionally involve itself with vehicle accidents, investigators want to know why the auto burned following impact. "In addition, the NTSB is now investigating a fire involving the transportation of hydrogen gas for fuel cell vehicles". Tesla defends its batteries, saying they are safe.
