Uber Safety Driver Charged With Homicide

Everything changed for Uber back in May 2018. If you don’t recall, that was when a Volvo XC90 modified with Uber self-driving technology struck and killed a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona. The 49-year-old victim, Elaine Herzberg, was rushed to the hospital but died of her injuries soon after. Herzberg was walking her bicycle across the street at night outside of a crosswalk zone, and the vehicle failed to stop in time. There was also a human safety driver, an Uber employee, at the wheel. And now that individual has just been charged with negligent homicide, according to Reuters.

Rafael Vasquez, 46, has pleaded not guilty to the charge and has been released until her trial gets underway this coming February.
