Waymo autonomous vehicle involved in crash in Arizona

Waymo autonomous vehicle involved in crash in Arizona

In a statement to Buzzfeed, Chandler Police said, "The Waymo was in the wrong place at the wrong time", and that it was not the "violator vehicle".

According to police, a Honda sedan traveling eastbound on Chandler Boulevard had to swerve to avoid striking a vehicle traveling northbound on Los Feliz Drive.

Lower than two months after a self-driving Uber struck and killed a pedestrian, police in Arizona are investigating one other autonomous automotive crash, this time involving a auto operated by Google-owned Waymo. Chandler police said the van was operating in autonomous mode. "That silver Honda passenger vehicle collided with the Waymo vehicle". However, in only one incident so far was a Waymo vehicle said to be at fault: A Waymo vehicle was traveling at 2 miles per hour in Mountain View, California, when it hit the side of a public bus. Both vehicles had to be towed after the collision, which was first reported by ABC15.

This is the second crash that involved self-driving vehicles to happen this year in the Phoenix area.
