Waymo Vehicle in Autonomous Mode Crashes in Chandler

Self-driving car crash in Arizona: Waymo car involved in Chandler crash

The video released by Waymo is taken from front-facing camera sensors mounted in the auto.

- Matt Jaffee (@mattjaffee) May 4, 2018p "We are now investigating a minor injury collision involving two vehicles, one of which is a Waymo autonomous vehicle". Supposedly, what followed was that the driver of the eastbound vehicle swerved into the opposite lane to avoid a collision with another auto and consequently hit the Waymo van.

Waymo in the vehicle on the driver's seat was the man who received minor injuries. "Both the Waymo Vehicle and the Honda were towed from the scene.The accident is under investigation".

Police say the crash happened Friday afternoon local time after a Honda sedan swerved to avoid another vehicle, and hit the self-driving van.

Police spokesman Seth Tyler said it is believed that this is the first Waymo collision in Chandler this year.

As per the Chandler Police Department report, a vehicle on the other side of the road had to swerve to avoid a collision, only to cross over to the other side of the road and smash straight into the Waymon minivan. Dash-cam video from Uber's fatal accident in March-when one of its cars in autonomous mode struck and killed Elaine Hertzberg-showed that that event was probably avoidable, contrary to initial police statements. The Alphabet-owned company has been testing its self-driving cars in the Phoenix metro area, including in Chandler.

"The Waymo vehicle is not the violator vehicle".

Waymo began its self-driving auto business in 2009, at which point it was a part of Google, according to the company website.

According to Tyler, the Honda swerved to get away from a third vehicle that appeared, causing the collision.

Self-driving vehicles might be the future of transportation.

So far, Waymo hasn't commented on the crash.
