Google's self-driving car meets with accident: Mishap noted after fortnight

Tue, Mar 01, 2016, 11:03 AM
Google's self-driving car met with the first accident, in which none was hurt.

The accident took place when the self-driving car being tested by Google struck a public bus on a Silicon Valley street. It is considered a minor accident that appears to be the first one of the tech company's vehicles during the testing.

Google accepted some responsibility for the collision, which occurred on February 14, when one of the Lexus SUVs it has outfitted with sensors and cameras hit the side of the bus near the company's headquarters in Mountain View, California.

No one was injured, according to an accident report Google wrote and submitted to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. It was posted online on Monday.

According to the report, Google's car intended to turn right off a major boulevard when it detected sandbags around a storm drain at the intersection, when the accident occurred.
