SAN FRANCISCO, Calif — Operating as an Uber “partner,” a private taxi driver is being sued by a San Francisco woman who was severely injured by a fire hydrant geyser, according to a lawsuit filed in the California Superior Court in San Francisco. Uber is a mobile-application-based company that connects customers with luxury vehicle drivers.

The plaintiff, Claire Farhbach, was a bystander in the incident. According to the lawsuit, Farhbach was walking down the street when Uber driver Djamol Gafurov’s black town car collided with another car, and one of the cars hit a fire hydrant. The fire hydrant geyser hit Farhbach and caused body lacerations, a fracture in her lower leg and multiple herniated discs, according to the lawsuit.
