This particular crash took place in Chandler, AZ, and saw significant damage to the modified Chrysler Pacifica minivan that Waymo has been using for its trials. According to local police, the Waymo car was struck when another vehicle crossed into opposing traffic, ABC15 reports. Another car had been forced to swerve moments before to avoid that vehicle.
The extent of the damage in the collision is unclear at this stage. Waymo’s minivan had been in self-driving mode at the time, though with someone behind the wheel. That person sustained what are said to be minor injuries.
