CHP says Tesla plunge at Devil’s Slide was intentional, driver arrested for attempted murder
California Highway Patrol identified Dharmesh A. Patel, of Pasadena, as the man who drove himself and three others off the ‘Devil’s Slide’ cliff in a Tesla
A 4-year-old girl, a 9-year-old boy and two adults survived Monday after their car plunged off a Northern California cliff along the Pacific Coast Highway near an area known as Devil’s Slide that’s known for fatal wrecks, officials said.
The Tesla sedan plummeted more than 250 feet (76.20 meters) from the highway and crashed into a rocky outcropping. It appears to have flipped a few times before landing on its wheels, wedged against the cliff just feet from the surf, according to Brian Pottenger, a battalion chief for Coastside Fire Protection District/Cal Fire.
