In a statement, Chandler Police said that a Honda sedan swerved from its lane to avoid a collision with another vehicle. Arizona changed its rules on autonomous vehicle testing late in 2017, opening the door to driverless cars being operated without a human behind the wheel.

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.

Meanwhile, the autonomous vehicle incurred lesser damage as it was presumably hit at an angle from the side. The Waymo operator sustained only minor injuries, according to reports.

In March, a woman, Elain Herzberg, was fatally hit by an Uber vehicle that was in autonomous mode in Tempe.

"We are now investigating a minor injury collision involving two vehicles, one of which is a Waymo autonomous vehicle".

However, the vehicle that was involved in the crash reportedly had a driver behind the wheel at the time. A silver Honda sedan, traveling eastbound on Chandler Boulevard, swerved across the median strip, eventually colliding with the Waymo minivan. He said the vehicle was traveling westbound as it approached an intersection and the Honda sedan was traveling eastbound. Tyler went on to say the "The Waymo vehicle was rolling, but I don't think it was going very fast". According to preliminary data, the initiator of the accident was another vehicle.

Experts noted that the company will have more answers after its technicians analyze the video and the data taken from vehicle's array of sensors and autonomous driving system.

Right now: Pretty gnarly crash with an @Waymo van in Chandler, AZ. "This incident is still under investigation", the statement was given by the local police to the Techcrunch.
