“Tempe Police Vehicular Crimes Unit is actively investigating the details of this incident that occurred on March 18th,” Tempe police said on Twitter. “We will provide updated information regarding the investigation once it is available.”

The self-driving car, a Volvo XC90 sport utility vehicle, was said to be traveling at 40 miles per hour at the time of the accident – 5 miles under the speed limit.

Tempe Police Chief Sylvia Moir argued Monday that the accident may have been unavoidable given the circumstances surrounding the crash.

“It’s very clear it would have been difficult to avoid this collision in any kind of mode (autonomous or human-driven) based on how she came from the shadows right into the roadway,” Moir told the San Francisco Chronicle.

The fatal crash is the first known of its kind involving a pedestrian and self-driving vehicle.

“Our hearts go out to the victim’s family,” Uber said on Twitter. “We’re fully cooperating with @TempePolice and local authorities as they investigate this incident.”
