The human backup driver in an autonomous Uber SUV was streaming the television show "The Voice" and looking downward just before fatally striking a pedestrian in suburban Phoenix, according to a police report.
The 300-page report released Thursday night by police in Tempe revealed that driver Rafaela Vasquez had been streaming the musical talent show on her phone via Hulu in the 43 minutes before the March 18 crash that killed Elaine Herzberg as she crossed a darkened road outside the lines of a crosswalk. The report said the crash, which marks the first fatality involving a self-driving vehicle, wouldn't have happened had the driver not been distracted.
One-year-old Ayla Esler bursts into a smile after hearing sound for the first time, thanks to cochlear implants installed in the toddler’s ears last month at Fort Worth’s Cook Children’s Hospital.
In a widely shared Facebook video, Anna Esler teared up as she watched her daughter, who was born with profound hearing loss, react to noise in the room.
“I was really overwhelmed,” Anna said. “We had waited a long time, just to see her respond. I was just so incredibly thankful. It was just beautiful to see her hear for the first time.”
Comedian Tom Arnold, who's working on a show with Vice that features him searching for unflattering video of President Donald Trump, tweeted a photo of himself with the president's embattled personal attorney, Michael Cohen, NBC News reported.
Cohen retweeted the photo, which had a simple caption: "I love New York." He referred a request for comment to Arnold, who told NBC News, "It’s on! I hope he [Trump] sees the picture of me and Michael Cohen and it haunts his dreams."
Arnold wouldn't say whether Cohen would provide him with any tapes he may have of conversations with Trump, but he said, "This dude has all the tapes -- this dude has everything."

Immigrant advocates applauded President Trump’s decision on Wednesday to end the separation of migrant families crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally but fear a return to long detentions while the families’ appeals for asylum are decided.
“We’re going to go from family separation, which is a terrible practice and we shouldn’t be doing it, but we’re going to go back to longtime family detention, which is just as abhorrent a practice,” said Jacquelyn Kline, a lawyer who has represented parents and children being held at Berks County Residential Center in Leesport, Pennsylvania.
Outrage over the images and sounds of small children removed from their parents, crying on their own behind chain-link fences, forced Trump to reverse his policy, but warnings from advocates about the medical, physical and emotional damage of long detentions have not gotten the same response, she said.

North and South Korea agreed Friday to hold temporary reunions of families divided by the 1950-53 Korean War as they boost reconciliation efforts amid a diplomatic push to resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis.
The reunions will take place at North Korea's Diamond Mountain resort from Aug. 20 to 26, Seoul's Unification Ministry said after a nine-hour meeting between officials from the two sides.
It said the countries will each send 100 participants to the reunions. People with mobility problems will be allowed to bring a relative to help them.
Virginia's two Democratic senators asked the Trump administration Friday for answers about operations at a juvenile detention facility in the state where immigrant children said they were bound, beaten and isolated in solitary confinement.
Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine sent to the head of the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement questions about the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center. The Associated Press reported Thursday that six Latino teens had made sworn statements detailing severe abuse they said they endured between 2015 and 2018, under both the Obama and Trump administrations. In court filings, lawyers for the detention facility have denied all allegations of physical abuse.
A bikini-clad black teenager who was shoved to the ground by a North Texas police officer has settled a federal lawsuit against him and the city of McKinney for almost $150,000. The legal guardian of then-15-year-old Dajerria Becton filed a $5 million lawsuit following the June 2015 incident that was captured on cellphone videos. Videos taken by witnesses at the pool showed Casebolt, who is white, running after black teens and ordering them to the ground, then forcing Becton onto her stomach and placing his knees on her back. At one point in one of the videos, he can be seen drawing his firearm after two young black men charged forward in apparent protest of the girl's treatment but holstered the weapon when two other officers intervened.

Authorities say 33 children and three adults were hospitalized after falling ill during a summer camp in Florida. Most of them complained of nausea.
WFLA-TV reports that one child passed out, prompting Thursday's 911 response to the Clover Leaf 4H Camp.
The Highlands County Health Department is searching for the cause of the illness, which is not thought to be serious.
A 17-year-old boy fatally shot by a police officer in Pennsylvania seconds after he fled a traffic stop did not pose a threat to anyone, a lawyer for the family of the teen said.
Civil rights attorney S. Lee Merritt said late Wednesday that he doesn't see any apparent justification for the use of deadly force by an East Pittsburgh police officer that left Antwon Rose Jr. dead. Allegheny County police are conducting an independent investigation of the shooting in East Pittsburgh, a borough about 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of Pittsburgh.
Part of the encounter was captured on video and posted to Facebook by a bystander. Officer Michael Rosfeld confirmed to a WTAE-TV reporter who went to his house Thursday that he was the officer who fired the shots but said he had not watched the news and was unaware the video even existed. Rosfeld said he could not talk about the shooting because of the open investigation.
President Donald Trump is trumpeting results of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that get ahead of reality.
He is declaring that North Korea has already begun ridding itself fully of nuclear weapons following an agreement with Kim in Singapore earlier this month, even though his Defense Department says otherwise.
Trump also prematurely claimed the return of remains of U.S. servicemen missing from the 1950-53 Korean War.
Here is a look at how his statements compare with the facts.

Russia says the U.S. and its allies have relied on fabricated evidence to accuse the Syrian government of launching chemical attacks against civilians.
Russia's foreign and defense ministries also charged Friday that the international chemical weapons watchdog has failed to objectively investigate the alleged chemical attacks and is subject to political control.
Maj. Gen. Igor Kirillov, the chief of the Russian military's radiation, chemical and biological protection unit, said investigators from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had failed to visit the sites of alleged use of sarin and chlorine, relying on evidence he described as rigged, presented by activists.
The House Republican immigration overhaul dangled precariously Thursday, imperiled by stubborn differences between conservative and moderate factions — and by President Donald Trump's running commentary about a bill he only half-heartedly supported and then suggested would never become law.
Republican leaders were twice forced to postpone final voting, first until Friday and then punting it to next week, as negotiators made a last-ditch push for support.
