Uber self driving car kills pedestrian in Arizona 

“Some incredibly sad news out of Arizona,” Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber tweeted. “We’re thinking of the victim’s family as we work with local law enforcement to understand what happened.”

The fatal crash happened last night while the car was in autonomous mode. A person who was monitoring the test was also behind the wheel.

The woman, Elaine Herzberg, was hit while attempting to cross a street. She later died at a local hospital.

The ride-hailing firm began testing driverless cars in Pittsburgh in 2016 and has programs in San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Toronto and the Phoenix area, which includes Tempe.
