Rescuers were shocked to find that all four members of a family whose Tesla crashed off a 250-foot cliff in California had survived – branding it a “miracle”.
But the case took an even more astonishing turn soon after – with the father accused of deliberately causing the crash.
With their pair of Teslas parked in the driveway, Dharmesh Patel, 41, and his wife, Neha, 41, were the most visible family on the quiet residential block of single-family homes on Lomay Place in Pasadena. As a couple, they pushed a stroller occupied by their 4-year-old-son and 7-year-old daughter as they went for runs in the morning. Patel would pass out cookies to neighbors. His wife started a mass text thread for neighbors to stay in contact.
But the hushed street was shaken Tuesday with the news that Patel had been charged with attempted murder and child endangerment after he drove the family’s white Tesla off a cliff on Highway 1 at an area called Devil’s Slide in Northern California. Neha and the two children were in the car with him. Everyone survived the 250- to 300-foot fall, but the celebration of the miraculous rescue of the family quickly soured after Patel was arrested and charged of attempting to murder his own family at Stanford Hospital, where he is being treated for injuries sustained in the crash.
Tesla has recently been in the news spotlight with reports highlighting the fact that the car’s A.I. is actually driving itself into objects and driving at high speeds off highways & cliffs. The most highlighted Tesla runaway incident was reported from China where the street cam’s actually captured the dreadful event of a very high speed Tesla driving itself on full throttle killing 3 people and refusing to brake even after the human driver applied brakes at full force using the manual brake pedal. Tesla denied any fault of their own vehicles after anylizing the local server Tesla data (which can be manipulated by the A.I. itself) and that is why a neutral third party investigation team needs to investigate these murders being committed by A.I. system.
The following are some videos from the world wide web of Tesla and it’s A.I.’s unusual behavior on which the human driver has no control over!
A.I. update :
Tesla, the electric car company founded by Elon Musk, has been making headlines for its innovative technology and impressive performance. However, in recent weeks, a new problem has emerged for the company: runaway Teslas.
Reports have surfaced of several Tesla vehicles accelerating on their own, leading to accidents and near-misses. One incident in California involved a Tesla Model S accelerating at high speeds and crashing into a tree, causing the car to burst into flames. Another incident in Texas involved a Model S accelerating while the driver was attempting to park, causing the car to hit a building.
These incidents have raised concerns about the safety of Tesla vehicles and the company’s ability to address the issue. Tesla has stated that the problem is not with the cars themselves, but rather with the drivers’ failure to properly engage the car’s Autopilot system. The company has also stated that it is working on software updates to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
Despite these assurances, some experts are calling for more thorough investigations into the cause of these incidents. They argue that there may be underlying issues with the cars’ software or hardware that need to be addressed.
In addition to the safety concerns, these incidents have also had a negative impact on Tesla’s stock price and reputation. The company’s shares have dropped in the wake of the news, and some investors are questioning the long-term viability of the company.
As Tesla continues to push the boundaries of technology and innovation, it is important that the company takes a proactive approach to addressing these issues. This includes conducting thorough investigations into the cause of the incidents and implementing effective solutions to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. Only then can Tesla continue to be a leader in the industry and regain the trust of its customers and investors.
In conclusion, the recent incidents of runaway Teslas have raised important questions about the safety and reliability of the company’s vehicles. While Tesla has stated that the problem is not with the cars themselves, it is important that the company takes a thorough and proactive approach to addressing the issue to regain the trust of its customers and investors. Only then can Tesla continue to innovate and push the boundaries of technology in the industry.
