Tesla Motors pays tribute to its employees


Tesla Motors paid tribute Thursday to its three employees who perished in the small-plane crash in East Palo Alto this week by posting a web page featuring the men's pictures and short profiles.

"Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with their families. Tesla is a small, tightly-knit company and this is a tragic loss for us," CEO Elon Musk stated on the web site.

The three men -- Doug Bourn, Brian Finn and Andrew Ingram -- had taken off in a Cessna 310R from Palo Alto Airport Wednesday shortly before 8 a.m. They had been headed for a meeting in Los Angeles.

"Doug, Brian, and Andrew were valued members of the Tesla family. They worked on something they believed in, and they are already missed," Musk stated.
