Uber Halts Self-Driving Car Tests in Arizona After Friday Night Collision

“Given that the Uber vehicle has flipped onto its side it looks to be a high speed crash,” writes TechCrunch, though Business Insider reports that no one was seriously injured. An anonymous reader quotes their report:
A self-driving Uber car was involved in an accident on Friday night in Tempe, Arizona, in one of the most serious incidents to date involving the growing fleet of autonomous vehicles being tested on U.S. roads… Uber has halted its self-driving-car pilot in Arizona and is investigating what caused the incident… A Tempe police spokesperson told Bloomberg that the Uber was not at fault in the accident and was hit by another car which failed to yield. Still, the collision will likely to turn up the temperature on the heated debate about the safety of self-driving cars.
