Woman dies after being hit my one of Uber's autonomous vehicles

A pedestrian has been killed by one of Uber's autonomous vehicles on a street in Arizona. This is the first reported fatal crash involving a self-driving car. 

Although there was a vehicle operator inside the car, the vehicle was in the autonomous mode and the time of the crash. 

In a statement on Twitter, Uber said: 

"Our hearts go out to the victims family. We are fully cooperating with local authorities in their investigation of this incident " 

Uber have now paused their self-driving car operations in Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a Tweet:
