Google Self-Driving Car T-Boned By Interstate Delivery Truck

A Google self-driving Lexus was in "one of the worst" accidents that any of their cars have ever been in. A van ran a red light and struck the car, even though the light was green for the Google vehicle at least six seconds before it entered the intersection.

Specifically, we’re told the crash happened in Mountain View, California, at the corner of W El Camino Real and Calderon Ave. We’re told that no one was hurt in the crash and all airbags deployed. "I only saw the tail-end of the crash, and the dazed Google employees sitting around afterwards waiting for their tow-truck. I had to be on my way," a witness told us. The witness also mentioned that, based on their perspective, the self-driving car was not at fault. "From what I could see, it was the van’s fault entirely," they said.
