A doctor is facing attempted murder and child abuse charges after he was accused of intentionally driving his family off a cliff with his family inside.
Dharmesh Patel, 41 was placed under arrest after being rescued from the mangled vehicle at the bottom of a notoriously dangerous cliff, known as the Devil’s Slide, near San Francisco.
California Highway Patrol investigators worked throughout the night interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence from the scene, based on the evidence collected, investigators developed probable cause to believe this incident was an intentional act.
Patel, his wife, Neha, and their children — a 7-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy — miraculously survived after the car careened off ‘Devil’s slide’ about 10.50am.
The vehicle apparently flipped several times before coming to rest on its wheels.
The family members were initially listed in critical condition but all four were conscious and alert when rescuers arrived. There was no guardrail at the spot where the white Tesla went over the edge.
PS: This could well be another desperate Tesla Ad, how all 4 people survive a 75m fall on rock solid ground, the car looks quite “dead” from the pix.
