Tesla Driver Faces Attempted Murder Charges for Driving Family Off Cliff

Northern California prosecutors on Monday filed attempted murder charges against a motorist who was behind the wheel of a Tesla that went over a cliff, nearly killing himself, his wife and two children.

Dharmesh Patel, 41, was charged with three counts of attempted murder, according to court documents filed by San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Dominique Davis. Two of those charges include special allegations of domestic violence and intent to cause great bodily injury.

Patel is expected to appear before a San Mateo County judge later in the afternoon in connection with the Jan. 2 crash off Devil’s Slide, a roughly 250-foot cliff 20 miles south of San Francisco.
