    "driver has been de-activated" looks like his car got de-activated...

    How do you speed out of control for 2 blocks before slamming into a gas pump!? I'm all for innocent until proven guilty, but something seems a bit off in this story...

    Lol, if they had a blackbox in that car, I could imagine the uber driver: Oh so you are going to report me? Let's ride!

    Really, this guy crashed his car like that because he was pissed off seeking to kill himself and the pax.

    This is just really sad to hear about. Without knowing the full details, it's really hard to comment further. It's just really sad all around.

    This is Exactly why Jeff Jones quit.
    The Driver is always sacrificed immediately on the alter of press and public blood lust.

    Any complaint ,no matter how outlandish and outright an attempt at passenger theft,the Driver suffers immediately ! Without compensation when proved innocent !

    THIS IS EXACTLY WHY WE NEED A UNION.

    DRIVER MUST HAVE JUSTICE AND BALANCE !

    That vehicle no doubt has a black box.from the manufacturer.
