UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — Uber has reportedly reached a settlement with the family of an Arizona woman struck and killed by one of its self-driving cars.
A family lawyer said, “The matter has been resolved.”
However, no financial details have been made public.
The National Transportation Safety Board has launched a comprehensive investigation of the March 18 crash that killed 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg.
Tempe police have released dashcam video that shows her appear in the car’s headlights a split-second before the crash.
Herzberg had been walking her bicycle outside of a crosswalk. Uber’s test vehicle, meanwhile, had been operating in autonomous mode with a human safety driver behind the wheel.
The ride-hailing giant has since put the brakes on its self-driving car program.
Arizona’s governor suspended the company’s ability to test autonomous cars in his state, and Uber won’t seek to renew a similar permit in nearby California.
