The Thanksgiving Day collision on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge involved a Tesla that may have been utilizing the company’s “Full Self-Driving” software, according to a statement from the U.S. government’s highway safety agency.

On Thursday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that it had deployed the team after getting information from Tesla and police authorities.

Around midday, an eight-vehicle collision blocked two lanes and caused heavy holiday traffic.

According to CNN, which obtained a copy of the crash report through a public records request, nine people were treated for minor injuries, including a toddler hospitalized.

According to reports, the Tesla Model S driver informed the California Highway Patrol that the company’s “Full Self-Driving” technology was in use when the collision occurred and that it abruptly braked while moving at 55 mph (88.5 kilometers per hour).

According to CNN, the Model S moved into the far left lane before breaking to 20 mph, causing the collision.

On Thursday, a message was left asking Tesla to respond to the most recent NHTSA action.

The Austin, Texas-based business has dissolved its public relations division.
