A self-driving Uber vehicle rolled onto its side after colliding with another car in Tempe, Arizona on Friday night.

A car failed to yield to the autonomous SUV and hit it, police said. The self-driving vehicle rolled onto its side as a result of the crash.

The crash happened at about 6:30 p.m. local time in the area of McClintock Drive and Apache Boulevard.

No injuries were reported. However, police said there was a passenger in the self-driving car. The person was behind the wheel but it's unclear whether they were controlling the vehicle at the time of the wreck.

Since the beginning of this year, the ride-sharing company has been testing out self-driving cars in Arizona. 

Uber told KNXV that they're aware of the incident and will provide an update when they have more details.
