“A self-driving Waymo minivan being driven by its human operator crashed in Chandler, Arizona, Friday afternoon, threatening to resurrect tough questions about the safety of autonomous technology and rip the barely-crusted scab off the technology’s reputation, which was badly wounded when an Uber self-driving car hit and killed a pedestrian in the same state just seven weeks ago.1

Chandler police report only minor injuries. According to a police statement released Saturday, a Honda sedan traveling eastbound entered an intersection on a red light and swerved to avoid another vehicle traveling north, veering into the Waymo Chrysler Pacifica’s westbound lane. The Honda hit the Waymo vehicle on its side, injuring the the SUV’s female safety driver. Police say the Waymo minivan was not traveling above the 45 mph speed limit. The police later cited the driver of the Honda for a red light violation.”
