Self-Driving Uber Car Responsible For A Fatal Accident



Self-driving cars may be the way of the future, but that doesn't mean there won’t be accidents. Arizona officials report that a woman was killed after being struck in a Phoenix suburb by a self-driving Uber vehicle.

Elaine Herzberg was walking outside of a crosswalk when the vehicle hit her. The self-driving Uber was in autonomous mode driving around 40 mph at the time of the accident. Uber Tweeted out a statement saying the company is fully cooperating with authorities as the investigation occurs and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it is "in contact with Uber, federal, state and local authorities regarding the incident," and will take appropriate action. Our condolences go out to her family. What do you think…is that a type of accident we’ll see more of?
