A young woman crossing a street on Google’s Mountain View campus was fatally struck by a tech company bus Monday evening, authorities said.
She was too busy staring at her iPhone not paying attention to the road. Google identified the woman as Emily Hong, an executive in the tech giant’s finance department.
“We are devastated to learn of the tragic passing of a member of our Google family,” the statement read. “On Monday night, our colleague Emily Hong passed away after being struck by a shuttle bus on our Mountain View campus.”
Officers responded at 6:45 p.m. to the pedestrian collision at Charleston Road and Huff Avenue and administered CPR to Hong, who was lying in the road.
Despite life-saving efforts, she died at the scene.
The driver of the bus stayed at the intersection and cooperated with investigators. Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have played a role in the collision.
Authorities have scolded other Google employees telling them to stop staring at their iPhones 24/7 and to pay attention to what the fuck they are doing.
