    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating a California Tesla crash where the electric car went airborne and killed a woman.

    The NHTSA did not identify the people involved in the crash, but it is believed to be Frank Shoaf’s crash, who was high from huffing and killed Cassandra May, 40.

    He was driving on Othello Avenue around 8am in June when he reportedly ran a red light, hit a dip and went airborne, and struck May before crashing into a bush.

    Shoaf reportedly asked officers for ‘another hit’ while they were ‘massaging the victim’s heart’
