Move follows fatal crash in state; testing continues in three other cities

Uber Technologies Inc. is closing down its self-driving vehicle program in Arizona about two months after one of its robot cars struck and killed a pedestrian in Tempe, near Phoenix.

Eric Meyhofer, the head of Uber's Advanced Technologies Group, announced the decision Wednesday in a memo to staff in Arizona.

"We've made the tough call to wind down operations in Phoenix," said Mr. Meyhofer in the email reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. "This is the best path forward as we work to get back on the road as soon as possible."

A spokesman confirmed the memo and said about 300 test drivers workers are affected. The company will continue autonomous-car programs in San Francisco, Toronto and Pittsburgh.


The report partially contradicts previously reported decision - Uber Won't Renew Permit for Self-Driving Cars in California.
