Police in Tempe, Arizona on Wednesday released footage taken inside the self-driving Uber right before the car hit and killed a pedestrian.
The video, which appears to have been recorded as part of the testing of the car and was posted by Reuters’ David Shepardson on Twitter, shows dashboard camera footage of a pedestrian crossing the street and being fatally hit by the car. It also shows the “safety driver” looking down until the car hit the woman.
