The crash will be unwelcome news for Tesla owner Elon Musk as federal safety agencies are in the middle of investigating the performance of Tesla's semi-autonomous driving system after two fatal crashes of Teslas on autopilot this year.

He claimed that "people might actually turn it off and then die" because of the stories about the fatal crashes.

South Jordan police said there was no indication the Tesla's driver on Saturday was under the influence of any substance.

Currently only about 2,000 of the more reasonably priced cars are being produced each week, despite more than half a million people having made paid reservations for the car.

The Model 3 starts at $35,000 (£25,700) but with options can easily cost more than $50,000 (£36,800).

Mr Musk is facing pressure from investors and buyers but last week dismissed his losses, saying he was "quite confident" about hitting positive cash flow in quarter three - but it is not a certainty.
