Police obtained records from Hulu with a search warrant that showed the streaming ended at 9:59 p.m. on March 18.
Reuters reported that The Voice was streamed for 42 minutes before the collision. Tempe police Sgt. Ronald Elcock said that the pedestrian stepped into the street outside of the crosswalk and was immediately struck by the vehicle.
According to the report, Vasquez could face charges of vehicle manslaughter. Investigators said "the crash was deemed entirely avoidable", had she been paying attention.
The Volvo's internal video shows Vasquez repeatedly looking down below the dashboard as the vehicle speeds along, as observers noticed when the video was released in March.
Both Vasquez and Uber could still face civil liability in the case, Uber for potentially negligent hiring, training and supervision, said Bryant Walker Smith, a University of SC law professor who closely follows autonomous vehicles. She also claimed that neither her personal or business phones were in use at the time of the crash.
Video from inside the vehicle shows Herzberg glances down more than 200 times and "appears to react and show a smirk or laugh at various points during the time she is looking down", the report states. "We plan to share more on the changes we'll make to our program soon", the statement said.
Uber is beginning to digest the information from the investigation and safety review in order to return to the road as safely as possible, the company said.
A photo from the police report show's the self-driving Uber's front-end damage after the fatal crash.
The crash killed Elaine Herzberg, a 49-year-old woman who was walking across the street when she was hit by the self-driving auto.
In the moments before the test vehicle hit 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg, who was walking her bicycle across a Tempe, Arizona, road, the test driver, Vasquez, was apparently streaming the TV show through Hulu.
The Maricopa County Attorney's Office referred the case to the Yavapai County Attorney's office because of a conflict, and that office could not be reached late Thursday.
Uber has a zero-tolerence policy prohibiting the use of mobile device, even a smartwatch, by its safety drivers, the spokesperson said.
A camera inside the vehicle pointed at the driver indicated that she didn't look up until half a second before impact. At 1.3 seconds before impact, the self-driving system determined that an emergency braking maneuver was needed to mitigate a collision, according to the NTSB.
It also noted that the roads were dry and level, and that there was no apparent medical condition that would have affected the driver at the time of the collision.
The police report faulted her for "unlawfully crossing the road at a location other than a marked crosswalk".
