A woman says she's suing Uber after she was allegedly sexually assaulted by a driver for the ride-sharing company.
Erica Holland's lawsuit alleges that earlier this month, she was picked up by an Uber driver and was headed to a nightclub on Melrose Avenue. That's when the male driver allegedly grabbed her by her hair, put his hand up her dress and made sexually explicit comments to her.
During a press conference this morning with her attorney Lisa Bloom, Holland says she is still traumatized by the incident and that Uber needs to do a better job of checking their driver's background.
Holland's lawsuit comes as authorities warn users of the ride-sharing service of people impersonating Uber drivers. Police say people should always double check the license plate and photo of the driver that's suppose to be picking them up.
