Uber CEO Says Company At Fault For Self Driving Accident


According to Business Insider, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshashi is not passing the buck on his company's self-driving car issues. On Tuesday, Khosrowshahi and the head of the self-driving car unit, Eric Meyhofer, were questioned by employees. The employees wanted to know about the culture at the autonomous-car unit. They asked about allegations of infighting and dysfunction in the unit prior to a tragic accident that killed a pedestrian. What followed was a couple of minutes in which the executives told stories and quoted wrong statistics. Khosrowshahi said, several times, "we have screwed up."
