A Tesla Model S burst into flames on the side of a Russian highway late Saturday evening after colliding with a tow truck. Driver, Alexey Tretiyakov, and his two children escaped the vehicle before it was engulfed in flames. Two small explosions occurred within a few seconds of each other.

Footage shown on Russian News Channel Rossiya 24 showed that the only part of the auto remaining after the fire was the metal frame.

Federal regulators also scolded Tesla chief executive Elon Musk past year for making what they said were "misleading statements" on Tesla safety, including claiming that Tesla's Model 3 has the lowest probability of injury of any vehicle the federal government had tested.

The driver, Alexei Tretyakov, 41, said he was traveling at the speed limit of 100 kilometers (62 miles) per hour when he veered into the tow truck.
