BENSON, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona law enforcement officials said a car collided with a state trooper’s SUV pulled over on the side of a highway near Benson on Tuesday, shoving the SUV into an ambulance.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the driver of the car, a 23-year-old California man, was injured but his injuries were not life-threatening.

The trooper was not in the SUV at the time of the crash and was not injured. The people inside the ambulance were also not injured in the crash, KPHO-TV reported.

The ambulance and trooper were on the side of the Interstate 10 after responding to an earlier accident.

The California man was driving a Tesla, which was in an autopilot mode, DPS said. The agency said it is still investigating if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
