So sad to read this! We knew Jim many years ago & he was a great guy. Sorry this happened to you Jim.

My husband Jim was not killed in the Tesla, the car protected him perfectly. When the car landed, he was able to exit the car, but after a few steps he had a coronary event, collapsed and died. We just celebrated his 60th birthday on the 11th; life can be so unfair...
