Waymo self-driving Automobile hit in Crash on Arizona Road

Waymo self-driving Automobile hit in Crash on Arizona Road

Video was released Friday showing a vehicle jumping a median and colliding with a Google-owned Waymo self-driving minivan in Arizona.

This isn't the first self-driving auto accident for Waymo.

In a statement, Chandler Police said that a Honda sedan swerved from its lane to avoid a collision with another vehicle. The Honda went into opposing traffic lanes and hit the Waymo auto.

For photos from the scene captured the Waymo van injured in the area of the front left wheel and bumper. At the time, police had suggested Waymo's vehicle was in autonomous mode, but with a safety driver behind the wheel. It previously announced its plans to test some of its vehicles in the State of Arizona without safety drivers onboard. It was fortunate that the person behind the wheel of the self-driving auto suffered only minor injuries. It was the first pedestrian death caused by a self-driving vehicle.

It swerved sharply before crashing into the driver's side of the Waymo vehicle.

Azkals draw Korea, China, Kyrgyz Republic in 2019 AFC Asian Cup
The Official Draw for the AFC Asian Cup was held at the Armani Hotel Ballroom of the Burj Khalifa, at Dubai on 4th May 2018. The other 12 qualified teams were placed in the remaining two pots, on the basis of their AFC and FIFA Rankings.

Air15 video showed significant damage to the self-driving van, as well as a silver sedan, after the collision near Chandler Village Drive and Chandler Boulevard. "This incident is still under investigation", the statement was given by the local police to the Techcrunch.

The latest crash of the Waymo self-driving vehicle is a reminder that the autonomous technology is still in its early stage. That vehicle was also in autonomous vehicle mode when the collision occurred.

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

"The Waymo vehicle is not the violator vehicle".

The incident-two months after an Uber self-driving vehicle 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 auto. Uber's autonomous auto operations have since been suspended in Arizona.
