Marking a first for the technology, an Uber self-driving car struck and killed a pedestrian in Arizona, USA Today reports. A woman was crossing the street at night on Sunday when the car hit her. At the time the car had a safety driver behind the wheel, there to take control if an error occurred. The case raises questions in the debate regarding the legality surrounding this technology. It is unclear whether the safety driver, Uber, or anyone might be charged in connection to the incident.
