A self-driving car killed a pedestrian in Arizona. Here’s what that means for Ford’s Miami test.


    Despite the Sunday accident in which a self-driving car killed a pedestrian in Tempe, Ariz., Ford’s autonomous vehicles will remain on South Florida roadways.

    Ford announced it had begun testing self-driving cars across Miami-Dade County last month. It has not experienced any accidents, the company said Monday — despite Miami-Dade’s notoriously erratic traffic — and plans to continue its testing program. The company said it has no more than two self-driving cars operating on county roads at the moment.
