An Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) SUV was parked on the side of road Tuesday morning attending to the scene of an earlier accident.

The Tesla Model S collided with the patrol vehicle, with the impact forcing the SUV into the back of the ambulance on scene.

Fortunately no one was inside the SUV at the time of the accident. There were occupants in the ambulance, but they were uninjured.

DPS said the driver is being investigated for driving under the influence. The driver apparently also claimed to officers the vehicle was on Autopilot, but this has not yet been verified.
