    Man dies from injuries sustained in fight with Uber driver in St. Petersburg

    ST. PETERSBURG — A 53-year-old man is dead after getting into a fight with his Uber driving, according to police.

    St. Petersburg police say Terry Lynn Kimball was punched during a physical altercation with his Uber driver, Kabir O'Farril Diaz, on Friday. Kimball did not regain consciousness and police said he died on Saturday. Police said he had serious brain trauma.

    Diaz, 38, pulled over his car at the Quick Pick Foods store at 800th 58th St. N after the two men began arguing over the route.

    Diaz is cooperating with investigators, according to police. No charges against him had been filed by Saturday afternoon.

    It's always a shame when anyone dies needlessly. Obviously none of us know what happened here, and it will be weeks before authorities conclude the investigation.

    But we do know one thing. The news media will play this as "Uber driver beats pax to death!!!!!!!!"

    Seriously -- if this story did not involve the word "Uber," would it be in the news?

    No.

    He didn't beat him to death he punched him in the face and he only did that trying to defend himself he was not charged it still under investigation passenger beware don't argue with your Uber driver. You reckon he got deactivated.

    Not always.
    Not even manslaughter.

    The driver should not speak without a lawyer present.

    1 mis spoken word can create charges.

    You KNOW he got deactivated.

    Even if the driver LIES THERE AND GETS BEATEN
    THE DRIVER ALWAYS GETS DEACTIVATED.

    Very sage advice.

    Keep your mouth shut and let your lawyer do all of the talking after you've explained the situation to him/her.

    You have the right to remain silent. Exercise it.

    He fought over the route for nothing because with upfront pricing he pays the same no matter the route
