Federal investigators are expanding their probe of Teslas that have slammed into parked first responders’ vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday its investigation now encompasses 830,000 vehicles with similar driver assist technology. Investigators have reviewed approximately 200 Tesla crashes and are focusing on 16 crashes involving emergency or road work vehicles.

The probe, officially known as an engineering analysis, could lead to a safety recall.

NHTSA’s work is specifically reviewing whether Tesla’s automated technologies make driving less safe, leaving drivers unprepared to take control and prevent a collision.
