"...34-year-old Jezniah Smith was struck and killed by a Chevy Cruze."

Self-driving car? Who was the driver? The car didn't do it all by itself.

It's interesting that crash reports will often tell you the make, model and colour of the vehicle involved, but rarely mention any driver.

The driver of the vehicle in the crash was Jeffrey Martin Randall, 36, of St. Augustine, Florida. Martin, who stayed at the scene and claimed he had the green light, was not cited., R.I.P.
