Toyota halts self-driving car testing after Uber crash

Toyota Motor Corp. has paused autonomous-car testing on U.S. public roads after Uber Technologies Inc.'s self-driving car struck and killed a woman in Tempe, Ariz., Bloomberg News reported March 20.

The Japanese automaker feels the incident may have an "emotional effect" on its test drivers, the news outlet reported citing an emailed statement by Toyota spokesman Brian Lyons.

Lyons told Bloomberg that Toyota's self-driving unit, Toyota Research Institute, does not have "first-hand information on the tragic traffic fatality."

According to a recent report, Uber is in talks with Toyota to sell its self-driving technology.
