A Uber self-driving Volvo XC90 on its side after a crash last Friday in Tempe, Arizona has resulted in the ride-sharing company calling a halt to its testing of autonomous vehicles.

As TMR reported last week, the program was already enduring a problematic start with a high percentage of the fleet actually being driven rather than operating autonomously.

However, the crash in Arizona was deemed the fault of the other car which hit the Uber XC90 after failing to give way. As such, Uber has already recommenced its autonomous testing program.

Uber did confirm the Volvo was operating in autonomous mode at the time of the crash, but there was a driver behind the wheel (although no passengers in the rear seat).

The force of the impact left the Uber Volvo on its side but there were no injuries sustained in either vehicle.

Uber was forced to move its autonomous vehicle program to Arizona after failing to get the required statutory approval in California.
