It happened at mile marker marker 102 along US-1 in Key Largo Sunday evening. 79-year-old Ralph Sheffler was driving his van south while Maria Esteves, of Miami, was driving a north when, for unknown reasons, Sheffler crossed the center line of US-1 and crashed head-on into Esteves’ car. She died at the scene. Sheffler was flown to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he later died.

Much like baking a cake, any successful lawsuit has necessary ingredients. One of the necessary ingredients is found if the family can answer "yes" to the following question: Is Uber responsible for the negligent actions of its user drivers? Uber, through its business model, answers this question in a loud "no". They claim that Uber is not a transportation provider, it does not employ any of the drivers using the app, and, more to the point, it does not accept liability for their actions.
