Self-driving Uber crashes in Tempe

Self-driving Uber crashes in Tempe

The incident occurred when another vehicle turned left in front of the Uber, causing the collision and the self-driving auto to roll onto its side, reported 12 News. Uber already had stopped its self-driving auto program in Arizona, and said its fleet there would remain off the roads while the company continues its investigation into the crash. Local police say there were no injuries and Uber's vehicle was not responsible for the incident.

Uber said Saturday it is suspending its tests of self-driving cars after one of its vehicles was involved in a three-way crash in Tempe, Arizona. Police in Tempe said the Uber rolled over onto its side as a result of the collision.

A vehicle failed to yield to the autonomous SUV and hit it, police said.

Uber had refused to apply for a United States dollars 150 permit to test the vehicles in the city. The company confirmed Jones' departure. Its self-driving cars were later forced off the roads of California by the Department of Motor Vehicles for not having a valid permit.

Tempe Police spokesman Sgt. Damon DeSpain said it was about 6:30 P.M. when the Uber self-driving vehicle was southbound on McClintock Drive near Don Carlos Drive when another auto hit it causing it to roll over on its side. No one is believed to be seriously injured.

Uber is also fighting a legal battle after Google's self-driving auto company Waymo filed a lawsuit against Uber for allegedly stealing trade secrets and technology from it.

Already mired in several controversies, this crash is the latest in a string of highly public incidents involving the ride-sharing company. Other companies who have been developing the technology, including Google's Waymo have been hesitant to put people in the backseat without further testing.

This setback comes on the tail of a no good, very bad, couple of months for the company. With the departure of Uber's President Jeff Jones and Vice President of Mapping Amit Singhal, the company made a decision to search for a Chief Operating Officer who it hopes will help CEO Travis Kalanick lead Uber through these troublesome times.
