Uber suspends driverless programme

Uber Technologies has suspended its driverless car programme after one of its vehicles ended up on its side following a collision in Arizona.

Two safety drivers were in the front seats of the vehicle at the time, although there were no serious injuries.

The car was in driverless mode when it collided with a second car that ‘failed to yield’ to the Uber, according to a police statement.

An Uber spokesperson said, ‘We are continuing to look into this incident. The vehicles collided, causing the autonomous vehicle to roll onto its side. There were no serious injuries.’
