Woman: My Uber driver went wrong way, I said something, he pushed me out
A California woman has sued Uber, alleging that her driver pushed her out of the moving car following her demand to be let out when the driver refused to take the most direct route to her destination.
The lawsuit—which was filed in Ventura County Superior Court on Monday—is strikingly similar to other lawsuits that have been filed against the company in recent years. Earlier this month, we reported on a New Jersey case in which unsafe driving apparently led to a car accident that left one woman seriously injured.
In the California case, Katherine Conner hailed an Uber to take her from one part of the city of Ventura to another—a route that she was familiar with. According to her civil complaint, the driver began driving in the wrong direction. When Conner inquired about it, the driver intimated that he was “taking a shortcut.”
