Uber will permanently close its self-driving car testing operations in Arizona.

Uber has announced that it will end its self-driving car operations in Arizona, with the loss of 300 jobs.

The move comes after a woman was run over and killed by an Uber autonomous car in the state in March, the BBC reports.

Arizona stopped Uber tests, and the company suspended self-driving car testing in several other states after the incident, which is still under investigation.

The company said it is conducting a thorough review of self-driving operations, and aims to resume testing in Pennsylvania later this year.
