Driverless car from GM’s Cruise and motorcycle collide in San Francisco

“We test our self-driving cars in challenging and unpredictable environments precisely because, by doing so, we will get better, safer AV technology on the roads sooner,” Cruise said in an email statement. “In this case, the motorcyclist merged into our lane before it was safe to do so.”
This is far from the first collision involving a Cruise vehicle on San Francisco streets. The company reported 14 collisions to California authorities between September and November of this year—a reflection of the company’s active testing on San Francisco streets. Many of these involved another car rear-ending the Cruise vehicle.
