The driver of a car that plunged off a cliff in Northern California, seriously wounding two children and a second adult after the 250-foot drop, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and child abuse. The suspect was in the car with his 41-year-old wife, his 4-year-old daughter, and his 9-year-old son.

The Tesla crashed on Monday, January 2, plunging 250 to 300 feet below the road it was on and into a rocky beach region known as Devil's Slide, some 20 miles south of San Francisco. According to the California Highway Patrol, all four occupants survived.

The state's highway patrol reported Tuesday, January 3, that "investigators developed probable reason to believe this incident was an intentional act" based on the information gathered.

According to an arrest report, the driver from Pasadena, California, was detained on charges of attempted murder and endangering a child. Following his hospitalization, he will be formally booked into San Mateo County Jail.
