The crash, which happened on March 18th, 2018 and resulted in the death of Elaine Herzberg, is believed to be the first fatal collision involving a self-driving car.
Uber temporarily halted its self-driving tests after the collision In March 2019, an Arizona prosecutor’s office ruled that Uber would not face criminal charges over the crash.
Uber temporarily halted its self-driving tests immediately following the crash, and when they resumed later that year in Pittsburgh they did so with much more stringent safety policies including having two safety drivers in each vehicle.
