- California cops say he intentionally drove the Tesla off the slide of a cliff

The Pasadena doctor charged with the attempted murder of his wife and their two young children by intentionally driving their Tesla off the slide of a 250ft cliff has been pictured today for the first time.
Dharmesh A. Patel, 42, works as a radiologist at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Pasadena.
He is accused of intentionally driving his white Tesla Model Y off a cliff known as Devil's Slide on Monday near San Francisco, during a trip north.
Miraculously, all four members of the family - Patel, his wife Neha and their kids aged four and seven - survived without any serious injuries.
Initially, there were questions over whether the car - which is famous for its self-driving technology - had gone rogue and taken the family off the road by mistake.
Now, some are asking whether the vehicle - which has airbags adjacent to the two front seats in addition to in front of them - actually saved them.
On Tuesday, police charged Patel with attempted homicide and child abuse, alleging that the incident was an attempted murder-suicide gone wrong.
He remains in the San Mateo County Jail today.
It's unclear whether his wife and kids are still receiving treatment in the hospital, or if they have been discharged.
Neighbors told CBS News of their shock after learning the allegations against Patel.
Roger Newmark, who lives several doors down from the family on a leafy Pasadena street, said: 'They're the sweetest couple and they have the greatest two little kids.'
The hospital where Patel works released a statement on Tuesday.
'Providence Holy Cross Medical Center is deeply saddened to learn of a traffic incident involving one of our physicians and his family.
'We are extremely grateful there were no serious injuries. We will not respond further, as this incident is under investigation.'
Among those to comment on the case was Tesla founder Elon Musk.
In response to a tweet about how the family survived, Musk said: 'Good news.'
His fans say the fact that they all did survive is proof of just how safe Tesla vehicles are.
Police are yet to complete their investigation into the crash, and are yet to confirm why they think the family survived.
They think the vehicle suffered one initial hit, then flipped multiple times in the air before landing upright, on its wheels.
'The damage to the vehicle would indicate that it hit, and then flipped several times,' Brian Pottenger, battalion chief with Cal Fire's Coastside Fire Protection District, said afterwards.
