FAA Investigating Whether Drone Caused Traffic Fatality


The accident happened February 1st on Main Street in Hartford, Connecticut. Police found a camera-carrying drone flying above the scene of the fatality. They ordered Pedro Rivera to stop using the device. Rivera is a photographer for WFSB TV-3. He was not working for the station on that day. Police claim Rivera violated an FAA regulation against commercial use of drones, but it appears the prohibition may only be a policy statement, not a regulation. WFSB suspended the man for a week without pay. Rivera is suing the Police Department for violation of his civil rights.
