A 21-year-old woman has been arrested for running a red light in San Francisco leading to the death of 39-year-old Benjamin Dean of Clovis, California who was visiting the city with his wife to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
The woman who has been identified as Kelsey Cambridge of Vallejo was taken into custody after the deadly crash. The Tesla she was driving was rented from the app Getaround and there has been speculation that the car could have been on autopilot, but so far that is just speculation and weak speculation at that.
A shocking dash-cam caught the crash on tape and shows Cambridge racing through the stoplight without even attempting to hit her brakes. San Francisco has a number of issues, and one that seems to keep coming up is pedestrian safety. This is just the second pedestrian death in the last four days in San Francisco.
Warning: The Video is Disturbing
