Isn't it possible that the video of the Uber crash was shot later for cover up?

    but how so?  That video didn't help them at all.  If they had a chance to re-create the video, they wouldn't have had the driver looking down playing Candy Crush and perhaps made the car appear to stop...or something.

      Maybe the situation was worse what the video showed.  Say for example,

      Maybe they swapped the driver with some schmuck who can't defend himself.

      Maybe they made the video darker already to show how crazy that victim was riding a bicycle crossing a highway at night.

    Yeah but then there's this. Even with that video, Intel thinks their software (which Uber doesn't use, but other AV companies do) would have done a better job. Their car would have applied the brakes a second before the crash.

    And that's based solely on this low quality video. With an array of LIDAR and other sensors it probably would have done much better. Maybe even stopped before hitting her.

    If so, yeah, they did a very crappy cover up.

    Here we go...another conspiracy theory.
