Waymo Minivan Involved In Crash While Traveling In Autonomous Driving Mode

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

Police say the crash happened Friday afternoon local time after a Honda sedan swerved to avoid another vehicle, and hit the self-driving van.

According to Waymo this evening, the vehicle was in manual mode, not driving autonomously, on Chandler Boulevard approaching North Los Felix Friv e/North Hearthstone Way in Chandler. In this case a driver was on board and was injured in the accident.




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. You can see Waymo's footage of the incident below. After the auto Honda has deviated from the original route, the vehicle continued to move East, but the Western strip of Chandler Boulevard, where there was a collision with a minivan Waymo, which was moving in the Autonomous mode at a low speed.

One of Waymo's Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans has been involved in an accident in Chandler, Arizona. Waymo's van is in slightly better shape as it appears the Honda hit the driver's side front fender. It seems like the tech giants are struggling with the safe testing of the self-driving vehicles. The Waymo van was reportedly hit by sedan after it swerved into the wrong lane in order to avoid another collision. At the time, police had suggested Waymo's vehicle was in autonomous mode, but with a safety driver behind the wheel. For now, it seems like the autonomous vehicle was not directly responsible for the crash. First reports indicate the autonomous vehicle was not at fault in the crash - not the "violator vehicle", according to ABC 15 News.
