               Operator of self-driving Waymo vehicle injured in Chandler crash        The investigation is ongoing

The police reported that the vehicle (Honda sedan), heading East on Boulevard Chandler, was forced to turn aside to avoid a collision with a auto that was headed North on the street in Los Feliz Drive.

Waymo is a autonomous driving company affiliated with Google. In this case a driver was on board and was injured in the accident. The Waymo was reportedly travelling at a slow speed and in autonomous mode with an occupant in the driver's seat.

Gov. Doug Ducey then suspended Uber's ability to test self-driving vehicles on roadways in Arizona, specifically citing the fatal crash in his decision.

The crash between the Waymo self-driving auto and the Honda sedan again proves that the technology is still in its early phase. It seems like the tech giants are struggling with the safe testing of the self-driving vehicles.

ABC15 Arizona has released footage of the collision's aftermath, which shows the Waymo vehicle, a Chrysler minivan, nearby a Honda sedan that's had its front end demolished. Both the Waymo vehicle & the Honda were towed from the scene.

This is not the first time an autonomous vehicle is involved in a crash. The crash in Chandler, Arizona only resulted in minor injuries, with early accounts suggesting that the autonomous vehicle was not at fault. According to reports, people got minor injuries.

Detective Seth Tyler said the driver of that Honda had to swerve to avoid slamming into a vehicle that had the green light and was moving into the intersection.

- Matt Jaffee (@mattjaffee) May 4, 2018p "We are now investigating a minor injury collision involving two vehicles, one of which is a Waymo autonomous vehicle". For now, it seems like the autonomous vehicle was not directly responsible for the crash.
