Self-Driving Uber With Passenger Involved In Arizona Collision

• by Tyler Durden

 According to ABC15, a car failed to yield to the autonomous SUV and hit it, authorities said. The self-driving vehicle then rolled onto its side.

A photo posted on Twitter showed one of Uber's Volvo self-driving SUVs pictured on its side next to another car with dents and smashed windows. As Bloomberg notes, the photo suggests a relatively high-impact crash. That would be a contrast to the incidents involving self-driving cars tested by Waymo.

According to the ABC reports, no injuries were reported however, police said there was a passenger in the self-driving car. The person was behind the wheel but it's unclear whether they were controlling the SUV or not. Uber's self-driving cars began picking up customers in Arizona last month. Uber told ABC15 that they're aware of the incident and will provide an update when they have more details.
