Self-driving bus gets into accident on its first day in Las Vegas, human driver blamed for collision.
Looks like robots are better drivers than humans.
A driverless shuttle bus was in an accident on the first day the electric vehicle was being tested in Las Vegas.
But police said another vehicle with a human driver was the one at fault.
The new shuttle bus was cruising down S. Sixth St. — one block east from the Vegas Strip — around noon local time Wednesday when it collided with a delivery truck, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
The bus, which can carry up to 11 people and communicate with traffic signals, stopped itself when its sensor noticed the truck backing up.
“The shuttle just stayed still and we were like, 'Oh my gosh, it’s going to hit us, it’s going to hit us,'” passenger Jenny Wong told local NBC affiliate KSNV. “And then it hit us.”
