A self-driving van operated by Waymo - a cousin company to Google under the corporate umbrella of Alphabet - was involved in a crash on Friday in Chandler, Arizona. This afternoon around noon a vehicle (Honda sedan) traveling eastbound on Chandler Blvd. had to swerve to avoid striking a vehicle traveling northbound on Los Feliz Dr.

The driver of the Waymo minivan, the only person in the vehicle, "sustained injuries which required hospitalization", according to Tyler. It was the first pedestrian death caused by a self-driving vehicle.

Police in a Phoenix suburb are investigating a collision involving a self-driving vehicle owned by Waymo. Supposedly, what followed was that the driver of the eastbound vehicle swerved into the opposite lane to avoid a collision with another auto and consequently hit the Waymo van.
