Scottsdale, Arizona—A driver for Uber struck a pedestrian on Camelback Road early Thursday morning. Police investigators report that a pickup truck driving westbound on Camelback near 78th Street struck a male pedestrian who was walking in a traffic lane at about 1:30 a.m.  After speaking with the driver of the pickup, police said neither speed nor impairment appear to be factors contributing to the accident.

Uber has not issued an official statement, though a spokesperson did say the driver has been removed from the cell phone application while the accident investigation continues.

We extend our condolences to the victim’s family and friends over this tragic loss.
