Waymo self-driving car hit in collision on Chandler street

Google faces a huge criticism after its autonomous vehicle crashes into a Honda city in Chandler, Arizona. According to the police, there are some minors injuries to the drivers of both the vehicles without any serious impact.

The Waymo minivan was not at fault during the crash that occurred at the intersection of Chandler Boulevard and Los Feliz Drive, said Seth Tyler, a Chandler Police Department detective. Chandler police said the van was operating in autonomous mode.

Detective Seth Tyler said the driver of that Honda had to swerve to avoid slamming into a vehicle that had the green light and was moving into the intersection.

The analysis report of the accident will come up soon from the experts and we will know the exactly what happened.

Tyler said that an eastbound vehicle swerved in the intersection to avoid a northbound auto, traveling into the westbound lanes, where the driver struck the Waymo minivan.

This is not the first time an autonomous auto is involved in a crash.

Waymo has released a video from the driverless auto involved in a collision in Arizona today, suggesting there was little either the vehicle or the safety driver could have done to avoid the crash. The vehicles were towed from the scene on flatbed trucks, the Waymo minivan covered by a tarp. "This incident is still under investigation".
