After a University of South Carolina student was killed by a man police say she mistook for her Uber driver, the president of the school is pleading with students who use the ride-sharing app. Police said Samantha Josephson climbed into the backseat of a stranger's car that she mistook for her Uber ride, and the driver likely stabbed her to death.
