U.S. Advances Probe of Teslas Running into Emergency Vehicles

The agency said it has reports of 14 crashes into emergency vehicles

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Thursday that it is upgrading the probe to an engineering analysis, another sign of increased scrutiny of the electric vehicle maker and automated systems that perform at least some driving tasks.

An engineering analysis is the final stage of an investigation, and in most cases NHTSA decides within a year if there should be a recall or the probe should be closed.
