A spokeswoman for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on on Friday that the agency was aware of the “July 26 incident involving a Tesla vehicle on the Long Island Expressway in New York, and has launched a Special Crash Investigation team to investigate the crash.”

The agency’s probe into the New York crash has not been previously reported.
