Family of woman killed in Tempe Uber self-driving accident seeks $10M

February 5, 2019

PHOENIX – The family of a woman who was hit and killed by a self-driving Uber vehicle last year has filed a $10 million complaint against Tempe.

The widow and daughter of Elaine Herzberg, 49, said in the claim, which is a precursor to a lawsuit, that the city was liable because it failed to “exercise reasonable care” to make the area where she was struck safe for pedestrians.

A brick walkway in the median didn’t align with the any crosswalks, a photo from the National Transportation Safety Board showed.
