Uber in fatal crash had safety flaws say US investigators

An Uber self-driving test vehicle that hit and killed a woman in 2018 had software problems, according to US safety investigators. The US National Transportation Safety Board found the car failed to properly identify her as a pedestrian. The fatal crash occurred in March 2018, and involved a Volvo XC90 that Uber had been using to test its self-driving technology.
