Responding to a user who indicated that Tesla's autopilot function still needs safety tweaking, Musk stated: "It certainly needs to be better & we work to improve it every day, but flawless is enemy of good".
The incident involving the Tesla Model S occurred on May 11 in South Jordan, Utah, when an unidentified 28-year-old female ran a red light and crashed into the back of another vehicle at 60 miles per hour.
"What's actually awesome about this accident is that a Model S hit a fire truck at 60 miles per hour and the driver only broke an ankle", Musk tweeted.
The 28-year-old female driver of the auto, who is unnamed, told Utah police that the Autopilot system was switched on she was looking at her phone when her vehicle slammed into the fire engine stopped at a red light. "An impact at that speed usually results in severe injury or death", the CEO tweeted.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a Tesla crash in Florida last week that killed two high school students. Meanwhile, a fatal crash in California, which happened when a Model X was on autopilot mode, is still under investigation.
Despite the rocky relationship between Tesla and the NTSB, agency spokesperson Keith Holloway said he's still uncertain as to whether the agency will open an investigation into the accident.
Mr Musk said during a conference call earlier this month that the company was going to conduct sort of a reorganisation restructuring. "To be clear, we will continue to hire rapidly in critical hourly and salaried positions to support the Model 3 production ramp and future product development". Although the Model S can be driven autonomously, it remains unclear whether the car's autopilot feature was turned on at the time of the crash.
Tesla has said that autopilot requires constant vigilance and is not meant to take over driving responsibilities.
According to Tesla, it was the fault of the driver that caused the accident; the car's autopilot system was engaged only six seconds before the accident.
