Uber, Honda Hit With Safety Lawsuit By Woman Paralyzed In Dallas Crash

Talk about bad luck. A woman is suing Uber and Honda after a driver ran a red light and resulted in life-changing injuries. I am pretty sure they have a case here because the driver’s background isn’t a particularly good one, which Uber should have picked up on.

Sarah Milburn thought she did the right thing by taking an Uber ride on a night out with friends celebrating a birthday. She said she’d never drink and drive, and walking to their next stop wasn’t safe. But neither, as it turned out, was the Uber ride. The Honda Odyssey they piled into ran a red light and crashed into a Ford F-150 pickup. The crash left the 24-year-old Milburn a quadriplegic. She’s paralyzed from mid-chest down. Essentially, her brain and much of her body don’t communicate.
