Uber driver charged in self-driving crash that left woman dead in Tempe in 2018

An Uber driver has been indicted with negligent homicide after a self-driving car crash left a woman dead in Tempe in 2018.

According to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, a grand jury indicted Rafael (aka Rafaela) Vasquez, 46, with one count of negligent homicide in the death of Elaine Herzberg in March of 2018.

At her arraignment on Tuesday, Vasquez pleaded not guilty.

In March 2019, Uber was cleared from criminal charges in the crash by the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office. The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office turned the case over to Yavapai County due to a conflict of interest with Uber. The case was then given back to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.
