Uber’s safety report released Thursday revealed 5,981 reports of sexual assault during rides in 2017 and 2018, including 464 rape allegations.

Report also notes that 19 people died in a physical assault during the same period.

Uber claims 99.9 percent of rides happen without incident and that in 45 percent of sexual assault incidents, it’s the rider who is accused of wrongdoing.

“The numbers are jarring and hard to digest,” Tony West, Uber’s chief legal officer, said about the findings in an interview. “What it says is that Uber is a reflection of the society it serves.”
