Waymo autonomous auto involved in crash in Arizona

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

The vehicles were towed from the scene on flatbed trucks, the Waymo minivan covered by a tarp. The second vehicle has a more pronounced damage to the engine compartment. The Waymo operator sustained only minor injuries, according to reports.

The collision occurred when the vehicle was in autonomous mode, but so far the Waymo auto doesn't appear to be the primary instigator behind the accident, according to local police.

A Waymo self-driving vehicle was involved in a serious accident in Chandler, Arizona earlier this afternoon. As the Honda swerved, the vehicle continued to head eastbound into the westbound lanes of Chandler Boulevard and struck the Waymo vehicle.

Police say the vehicle was in autonomous mode but there was an occupant in the driver's seat who suffered minor injuries.

The incident saw a vehicle veer across the lanes and into oncoming traffic.

The Waymo van's side was crumpled.

The Waymo vehicle, a Chrysler Pacifica, was struck by a human-piloted Honda sedan that swerved to avoid hitting another auto, according to a police statement reported by the Associated Press. "This incident is still under investigation", the statement was given by the local police to the Techcrunch.

Waymo is Google's self-driving auto spinoff.

There have now been two vehicle accidents involving autonomous vehicles in the Phoenix area.

The incident-two months after an Uber self-driving auto struck and killed a pedestrian in nearby Tempe-is still under investigation, but early indications are that it was not the fault of the autonomous vehicle. Riders can hail a Waymo autonomous van with the Waymo app.
