Father Who Drove Family in Tesla Off Cliff Allegedly Did so on Purpose: Police
A man driving a Tesla took a plunge over a California cliff, sending the car 300 feet through the air to its eventual resting spot. The incident that was originally written off as an accident is now being reconsidered as the driver is being charged with attempted murder. Police have not yet ruled out the idea that the driver could have been potentially trying to kill his wife, young son, and daughter who were in the car with him at the time of the incident.
Dharmesh Patel drove the Tesla off of a cliff that goes by the name of “Devil’s Slide” near San Fransisco. The area is known to be prone to accidents but investigators think that this one might not have been an accident at all. The case is ongoing as they try to get to the bottom of if this was just a terrible mistake or if there was foul play at hand.
Miraculously, after being hurled 300 feet down the cliff, all occupants of the car survived even though the Tesla ended up looking like a crushed soda can when it finally stopped rolling. The occupants of the car did threaten serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
After seeing the rescue footage of a helicopter lowering down a cable to recover the people from the car, it really didn’t look good. However, with these developments, we learn that not all things are as they appear.
Below, Inside Edition digs into the story a little bit deeper, trying to get to the bottom of what happened. They even went so far as meeting with a couple of neighbors who seemed to think that the Patel family was picture perfect, engaging with the community and giving everybody a positive vibe. We’re sure that developments are incoming and hopefully this was all just one big mistake.
