Uber has halted all of its self-driving car efforts after a self-driving car was involved in an accident in Tempe, Arizona - even though Uber's autonomous car wasn't at fault, as it was the human driver that caused the accident.

One of Uber's Volvo-made self-driving SUVs can be seen on its side, with an Uber spokesperson confirming the accident, and that the company is "suspending its autonomous tests in Arizona until it completes its investigation and pausing its Pittsburgh operations" reports Bloomberg. There were no injuries in the accident, with the police report stating that another car "failed to yield for the Uber car, causing the autonomous vehicle to flip on its side", reports Bloomberg.

Tempe police information officer Josie Montenegro said: "There was a person behind the wheel. It is uncertain at this time if they were controlling the vehicle at the time of the collision". An Uber spokesperson added that the company is "continuing to look into this incident and can confirm we had no backseat passengers in the vehicle".
