  • Waymo Vehicle in Autonomous Mode Crashes in Chandler

Chandler police said the van was operating in autonomous mode. It was the first pedestrian death caused by a self-driving vehicle.

Google faces a huge criticism after its autonomous vehicle crashes into a Honda city in Chandler, Arizona. It previously announced its plans to test some of its vehicles in the State of Arizona without safety drivers onboard.

According to the local authorities of Chandler, Arizona, the Waymo self-driving van was hit by a sedan, which attempted to avoid another collision. Waymo's van is in slightly better shape as it appears the Honda hit the driver's side front fender.

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. Onlookers and witnesses posted pictures of the crash, showing the sedan front-end totally wrecked within the crumple zone along with broken glass from its windshield and windows. According to reports, people got minor injuries.

Waymo in the auto on the driver's seat was the man who received minor injuries.

Chandler has seen at least three accidents involving Waymo autonomous vehicles in the past two years involving human drivers hitting the self-driving cars.

"The Waymo vehicle is not the violator vehicle". For now, it seems like the autonomous vehicle was not directly responsible for the crash. "Both the Waymo Vehicle and the Honda were towed from the scene.The accident is under investigation".

Reportedly the sedan was traveling eastbound and swerved to avoid another auto at an intersection, straying into the westbound lanes and hitting the Waymo van.
