What’s the Problem?

September 19, 2017 – The accident occurred yesterday during the morning rush hour commute between the Hot Metal Bridge and Sidney Street on the South Side of Pittsburgh, according to the Pittsburgh Business Times.

A black Nissan Sentra was driving west on Sidney when it crashed into Uber’s Volvo XC90, which was going south on Hot Metal Street. Nobody was hurt and the Uber driver was in control of the car when the accident occurred, said Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler.

Witnesses said that the self-driving Uber had some damage to the front end. Uber suspended service of its self-driving cars immediately following the crash as a precaution.

“We are looking into this incident and can confirm that only Uber employees were in the vehicle at the time,” an Uber spokesman said on Monday. He later confirmed that the self-driving cars were back on the road by 11 AM.

The vehicles have been operating in Pittsburgh since last September.
