- Matt Jaffee (@mattjaffee) May 4, 2018p "We are now investigating a minor injury collision involving two vehicles, one of which is a Waymo autonomous vehicle". Police are investigating the accident, per that report.
A self-driving SUV operated by Waymo was involved in a collision in Chandler, Arizona, authorities said in a statement Friday. When it swerved, it entered the westbound lanes and struck the oncoming Waymo van.
"The Waymo vehicle was not the violator vehicle [and] was in autonomous mode with an occupant behind the wheel at the time of the collision", police told the network.
Tyler said that an eastbound vehicle swerved in the intersection to avoid a northbound auto, traveling into the westbound lanes, where the driver struck the Waymo minivan.
Chandler Police Department spokesperson Seth Tyler said this collision is the first accident involving a Waymo vehicle in Chandler this year, according to ABC New 15. Supposedly, what followed was that the driver of the eastbound vehicle swerved into the opposite lane to avoid a collision with another auto and consequently hit the Waymo van.
