1 min read


According to media sources, a 41-year-old man of Indian descent was detained in the US on accusations of attempted murder and child abuse after he purposefully drove a Tesla down a cliff while his wife and two children were inside. After being discharged from the hospital, Dharmesh A. Patel of Pasadena, California, will be sent to San Mateo County Jail, according to a statement from the highway patrol.

The California Highway Patrol said Dharmesh Patel, his wife, and their kids were saved and survived on Monday at Devil’s Slide in San Mateo County. “Based on the evidence collected, investigators developed probable cause to believe this incident was an intentional act,” it said in a statement.

Witnesses phoned 911 following the collision, according to Brian Pottenger, the incident commander for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. “We were actually very shocked when we found survivable victims in the vehicle. So that actually was a hopeful moment for us,” Mr. Pottenger said. According to Officer Andrew Barclay, a spokesman for the Golden Gate Division of the Highway Patrol, the authorities intend to charge Mr. Patel with three charges of attempted murder and two counts of child abuse.
