Family of woman killed in self-driving Uber crash file $10M claim

In Arizona, the relatives of Elaine Herzberg who was killed when she was struck by an self-driving Uber vehicle have filed a $10 million claim against the Phoenix suburb where the incident occurred on March 19, 2018.

According to the Arizona Republic, the previously undisclosed claim filed last fall against Tempe seeks $5 million each for the husband and daughter of 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg.

The claim express that Tempe created a dangerous situation by installing a brick pathway across the median where people were not supposed to cross the road.

 Nikki Ripley a Tempe spokeswoman,  states that the city does not comment on pending litigation; however, she confirms that Tempe hasn’t responded to the claim and that it was made about the time when Tempe replaced the walkway with landscaping.
