Uber self-driving car kills a pedestrian in Arizona

In what is believed to be the first fatal crash involving a pedestrian and a self-driving car, an autonomous Uber vehicle hit and killed an unnamed victim in Tempe, Arizona, on Sunday night. So far few details have emerged, but Tempe police and Uber both confirmed the incident.

According to the Tempe PD, the self-driving Uber did have a driver at the time of the accident, but it was operating in fully-autonomous mode. Uber released a statement offering their apologies and condolences to the victim’s family.

Uber has decided to pull for the time being all of its self-driving vehicles which were operating as part of a pilot project in Pittsburgh, Tempe, Toronto, and elsewhere in Canada and North America.
