NTSB: Uber Self-Driving Car Had Disabled Emergency Brake System Before Fatal Crash

A vehicle drives by the spot where an Uber self-driving vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian earlier this year in Tempe, Ariz. The National Transportation Safety Board released a preliminary report Thursday on the collision.

The National Transportation Safety Board’s preliminary report said that sensors saw the victim. But Uber says it’s the driver, not its system, that was supposed to intervene to avoid the collision.
