WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Wednesday it is opening a new special crash investigation into a recent fatal crash in California involving a 2014 Tesla Model S where an advanced driver assistance system was suspected of use.

Last month, NHTSA said it asked Tesla for more information after the fatal crash of a Tesla involving a fire truck in Contra Costa County, California. The fire department said a Tesla struck one of its fire trucks and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
