Operator of self-driving Waymo vehicle injured in Chandler crash

The Chandler Police Department was investigating a minor injury collision involving a self-driving vehicle Friday afternoon.

"The Waymo vehicle is not the violator vehicle". That person sustained what are said to be minor injuries. Tyler reported that the Waymo vehicle was moving "at a relatively low speed".

A photo from the scene posted on Twitter from a bystander, Matt Jaffee, shows a white Waymo minivan sitting near the curb with damage to the driver's door and front left side of the vehicle. He said the vehicle was traveling westbound as it approached an intersection and the Honda sedan was traveling eastbound.

Police said the self-driving vehicle was not at fault.

The head of Waymo, formerly Google's driverless vehicle project, said at the time his company's technology could have avoided that accident.

Uber settled with Herzberg's family for an undisclosed amount, but was suspended from testing its self-driving cars in the state as a probe into the accident continues.

Chandler police said the Waymo van was in autonomous mode with an occupant behind the wheel at the time of the crash. It was the first pedestrian death caused by a self-driving vehicle.

This comes after a woman, Elain Herzberg, was fatally hit by an Uber vehicle that was in autonomous mode in Tempe, Arizona in March 2018.

Waymo did not immediately comment on the accident.
