Tempe Police Release Video of Moments Before Autonomous Uber Hit Pedestrian
Tempe police on Wednesday released video footage taken just before an autonomous Uber SUV hit and killed a 49-year-old pedestrian.
The video shows what the car and its safety driver could see before the collision with the woman and also offers footage of the driver.
The safety driver, Rafaela Vasquez, appears to look down several times, including immediately before the Volvo comes upon Elaine Herzberg. The Uber employee is then shown with a sudden look of horror.
