UBER SUED OVER GIRL'S DEATH IN SAN FRANCISCO
The family of a 6-year-old girl killed by an Uber driver filed a lawsuit against the driver as well as the company, asserting that the use of the fast-growing Uber app runs afoul of California’s distracted-driving laws. The suit alleges that the driver of the vehicle – who was at that time an Uber contractor – was logged on to the company’s Uber app when he fatally struck the victim. The wrongful-death suit will have a big effect on how technology companies like Uber, Lyft and Sidecar should be regulated and to what degree they should be held liable for the actions of their drivers.
