It looks like back in early August one of Google’s driverless cars was involved in a multi-car fender bender near Google’s headquarters.
In the full story, reported on Jalopnik.com, Google claims that at the time of the crash the vehicle was being driven by a human. The Google Prius apparently rear-ended another Prius, and according to a witness caused a cascade involving two or three other cars.
This accident brings up many interesting questions about how accidents can and will be handled in the future.
- How can police report on the accident?
- How to do they or insurance companies know who or what was driving?
- Who is responsible for damages?
These are all questions I’ll be pursing in future articles.
