Whether you want to call it real-life Christine or Black Rearview Mirror, this is truly terrifying.

For the first time since their inception, a self-driving car has taken a human life.

Uber's testing of the vehicles, which was taking place in high traffic cities like Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Toronto, was suspended after Tempe, Arizona police say the car struck and killed a pedestrian on Sunday.

The woman was apparently crossing the road but not within the designated crosswalk when Uber's test car — in autonomous mode but with a human tester behind the wheel — drove into her. She later died of her injuries at the hospital.

It remains to be seen whether this incident will fuel the public's fear of self-driving technology.

In case you wondered, 5,376 pedestrians were killed and 129,000 treated for injuries after being hit by cars driven by humans in 2015, the most recent year for which data is complete, according to the CDC.

According to a letter obtained by BuzzFeed News, the NFL is currently investigating an allegation that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston grabbed a female Uber driver's crotch in 2016.

The letter — sent from lawyer Lisa Friel to the alleged victim — read:

"The League has been informed that you may have been the victim of such a violation perpetrated by Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Jameis Winston. The league takes allegations of this nature very seriously and has opened an investigation into this matter."

On Sunday, March 13, 2016, Kate (last name omitted) reportedly picked up the football player in downtown Scottsdale, Arizona where a group of men sat him in the front seat. The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner was reportedly the only passenger.

As she "started driving," the athlete "behaved poorly" by shouting homophobic slurs at pedestrians.

After he asked to stop for food, "he reached over and he just grabbed my crotch" for allegedly three to five seconds while they were waiting in the drive-thru line at Los Betos Mexican Food.
