Self-Driving Car from Alphabet's Waymo Involved in Collision

Waymo released a video of the incident on YouTube.

An autonomous auto being tested by Waymo was involved in a serious collision in the Phoenix, Arizona suburb of Chandler, when a vehicle being driven by a human swerved to avoid another auto, and left the human operator in the Waymo with minor injuries.

As a result, the Honda went into opposing traffic lanes and hit the Waymo minivan.

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. It's unclear at this stage what caused the silver Honda to swerve across the road into the path of the Waymo minivan.

Karnataka Assembly polls: PM Modi starts campaign from BJP's weak spot
The state is the last big bastion of the Congress and the BJP, which reigns in 19 states, is looking to increase its tally. The run-up to the Karnataka Assembly elections 2018 has been heated.

Chandler Police say the incident happened Friday afternoon when a Honda sedan swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle. The Waymo operator sustained only minor injuries, according to reports.

It swerved sharply before crashing into the driver's side of the Waymo auto. It seems like the tech giants are struggling with the safe testing of the self-driving vehicles.

Reports say that the vehicle was in autonomous mode at the time.

Waymo began its self-driving vehicle business in 2009, at which point it was a part of Google, according to the company website.

After 49-year-old pedestrian Elaine Herzberg was killed crossing the street in Tempe, Ducey suspended indefinitely Uber's ability to test-drive on Arizona roads, but did not address Waymo.
