A crash involving a Waymo self-driving vehicle occurred in Chandler, Arizona, on Friday afternoon.
The police reported that the vehicle (Honda sedan), heading East on Boulevard Chandler, was forced to turn aside to avoid a collision with a auto that was headed North on the street in Los Feliz Drive. As the Honda swerved, it entered the westbound lanes of Chandler Boulevard and ended up hitting the Waymo minivan.
As per the reports, the Sedan was travelling eastwards and had swerved with the Waymo van by entering inyo the westbound lanes in the process of avoiding itself from intersecting with another vehicle. You can see Waymo's footage of the incident below. The Waymo self-driving auto was said to be travelling at a low speed which minimised the impact of the crash. The sedan's front crumple zone is wrecked and glass is broken; the van is in better shape, though its front right tire is crushed in.
While the van was reportedly operating in self-driving mode at the time of the crash, it reportedly had an operator sitting in the driver's seat.
It remains unclear if the Waymo minivan had any passengers at the time of the collision and Tyler couldn't confirm whether or not the driver of the Honda suffered any injuries.
