TEMPE, AZ — The family of a woman struck and killed by a self-driving Uber car last March have filed a $10 million claim against the City of Tempe.

Tempe police say 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg was walking outside of the crosswalk when she was struck by the vehicle, which was in autonomous mode, near Mill Avenue and Curry Road.

The claim seeks $5 million for Herzberg's husband and another $5 million for her daughter. It points out the city installed a brick pathway in the median even though people were not supposed to cross in the area, making it dangerous.
