The U.S. government's road safety agency is sending a special crash team to Indiana to investigate a fatal crash involving a Tesla electric vehicle.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Wednesday that its team will check the crash scene and inspect the Model 3 involved in the Dec. 29 crash with a parked firetruck on Interstate 70 near Terre Haute. The crash killed the driver's wife, who was a passenger in the Tesla.
It's the second Tesla crash in the past two weeks to be investigated by the agency. Also on Dec. 29, police said a Tesla Model S sedan left a freeway in Gardena, California, at a high speed, ran a red light and struck a Honda Civic, killing two people inside.
