In what is potentially the first case of a self-driving car wreck, Google’s self-driving car hit another vehicle this past Valentine’s Day.
The report shows that the Google car was traveling at under two miles per hour when the crash occurred. The self-driving car hit a bus. According to reports, the test driver thought the bus would yield to Google’s car, but when the bus did not Google hit the side of it.
No one was injured in the accident.
According to Google, they accept some responsibility for the wreck. They also point out that their test driver believed the bus was going to slow down for the self-driving car, and that also attributed to the wreck.
There has been no official declaration of fault in the wreck.
