    Speaking of Tesla again, but not about the latest fire story, City Bike reports that a 63-year old Tesla S owner ran over and killed a bicyclist while driving at 55 mph on Highway 1 in Santa Cruz last summer when he fell asleep at the wheel. The driver said it was not his fault. He is blaming the accident on Tesla for manufacturing a car with an "overwhelming new car smell". He says that is what caused him to pass out while driving and kill the bicyclist. Fortunately, the DA is not buying his story and is charging the driver with vehicle manslaughter.
