3 Tesla Motors employees killed in plane crash

Earlier this afternoon when having a glance at the Tesla Motors Club Forum I came across this news. I mentioned on Twitter that CNN and from what I could see other offline news organizations weren’t giving any coverage to the crash. From what I’ve read so far this tragic crash took place during takeoff from the Palo Alto Airport this morning. The Tesla Motors website front page has a note from CEO Elon Musk about this accident.

The Jalopnik article below took some nasty shots it shouldn’t have with this story. I do understand what the author is trying to say. But I don’t fully agree with the comments. Especially during such a tragic event with loss of life.

What is sad to me is that CNN & their Headline News channel were to busy pimping out the upcoming Tiger Woods announcement to care about a plane crashing into a neighborhood.
