    A video shows a massive blast after a collision, reportedly caused by the electric car on autopilot.

    A Tesla car rammed into a tow truck in Moscow, Russian broadcaster Zvezda reported on Sunday, publishing footage of the incident. The video shows how the electric car collides with a truck that was by the side of a highway with its hazard lights on.

    Then the Tesla swerves and abruptly blocks the road, almost causing another crash with a next car in line.

    A separate video shows the electric car catching fire and exploding in mere seconds. According to preliminary reports, the vehicle was on autopilot during the incident.

    The Tesla driver and his two children, who were in the car, were later admitted to a hospital, Zvezda reported, citing sources. According to various reports, all three were injured, but their lives are not in harm's way.
