One of Google’s self-driving cars crashed into a bus last month, marking the first time a vehicle in the company’s robotic fleet caused a collision, according to an accident report filed to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
The report says the crash took place on Feb. 14 in Mountain View, California, between Google’s self-driving Lexus RX450h and a public transit bus. The collision occurred after Google’s autonomous vehicle (AV) came to a stop and tried to maneuver around sandbags that had been positioned around a storm drain, according to the accident report.
The robotic vehicle was traveling at less than 2 mph (3.2 km/h) and the bus was traveling at about 15 mph (24 km/h) at the time of the crash, according to the report. There were no reported injuries, but the robotic Lexus RX450h sustained damage to the left front fender, left front wheel and one of the sensors on the driver’s side, the report said.
