Mother of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick killed

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick's mother died in a boating accident on Friday, while the father is in a serious condition. An autopsy to determine exactly how Bonnie Kalanick died is scheduled for Sunday and an investigation is ongoing. Her husband Donald is in serious condition following the tragic accident. Authorities gave no details on the relationship between Godbolt and the victims.

'Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family, and we wanted to let his Uber family know right away.

Kalanick's father was airlifted with moderate injuries, but his mother was pronounced dead on the scene. The accident occurred when their vessel hit a rock and sank shortly before 5 p.m. Friday, according to the Fresno County Sheriff's Department. Her son is Travis Kalanick.

Uber or Travis are yet to release an official statement regarding the matter.

Kalanick was at the Kentucky Derby with his parents three weeks ago.

After his first start-up, a file-sharing company called Scour, ended up Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and his second start-up, Red Swoosh, was barely scraping by, Kalanick moved back in with his parents in the Los Angeles area. Happy Mother's Day to the best mom out there.

Kalanick has built the ride-hailing company Uber into a almost US$70 billion juggernaut, operating in hundreds of cities across dozens of countries around the world. Colin Kalanick is a Fresno firefighter, being one of the firefighters involved in the daring rescue of Capt. Pete Dern when he fell through a roof during a fire.
