He had taken the Uber from his job in Marietta to southwest Atlanta, Channel 2 reported. The driver stopped to pick up another passenger.

“So that nobody else who has medical restrictions are driving for a company and then life is lost,” Robinson said.
Uber issued a statement on the incident.
“We are terribly saddened by this tragic incident,” a spokeswoman said, “and our thoughts go out to the family and loved ones of everyone involved.”
No charges are anticipated from the crash.
