Regardless of how the incident happened, did the lady walk straight out in front of the car, did the sensors fail or was the operator slacking in his job, this will set the self-drive program back for quite a long time. Regardless of the findings the finger will be pointed squarely at the fact the car was autonomous.

It's always some stupid person who stops progress. Maybe the self-driving cars will begin to weed out the ignorant people, as more and more people are hit and killed in the future. Survival of the fittest.

Let's look at the facts:
- 10 PM, nighttime
- crossing a divided 4 lane road NOT in the the crosswalk (use Google maps, you will see)
- safety driver in the Uber

This is much like a deer in the road at night at speed.
She was going to get hit no matter the vehicle.

Important Words in Article, "Pedestrian was Walking Her Bike, Outside the Crosswalk, at 10:48 PM at Night"! She Was "JAYWALKING", so "Uber", is Not entirely Responsible. NO wonder, the Uber Vehicle hit her, the Vehicle probably, did Not have in its Program of streets that there was NO Traffic Light there and was just a Highway. Uber, does have some responsibility, being that a Driver was in the Uber Vehicle.
