Google self-driving car has first crash – drives into bus

One of Google’s self-driving cars has crashed into a public bus, according to a report by the Associated Press.

The accident took place on a Silicon Valley street, and is reportedly the first time one of the company’s vehicles has crashed during testing.

“Google accepted at least some responsibility for the collision, which occurred on February 14 when one of the Lexus SUVs it had outfitted with sensors and cameras hit the side of the bus near the company’s headquarters in Mountain View, California,” stated the report.

No one was injured in the accident.

According to the report, the Lexus was going 3km/h when it hit the bus, while the bus was travelling at 24km/h.
