Google Self-Driving Car Hits Municipal Bus

Hmmm, a self-driving car swerves to miss some sand bags, ends up hitting a bus instead. The explanation claiming "the vehicle and the test driver believed the bus would slow or allow the Google (autonomous vehicle) to continue" is pretty sketchy. Just wait until it swerves to miss some sand bags and you go off a cliff. eek!

Alphabet Inc's Google self-driving car struck a municipal bus in a minor crash earlier this month, a recent filing showed, in what may be the first case of one of its autonomous cars hitting another vehicle. In a Feb. 23 report filed with California regulators, Google said the crash took place in Mountain View, California on Feb. 14 when a self-driving Lexus RX450h sought to get around some sandbags in a wide lane.
