Google Self-Drive Car Dings Bus

A Google self-drive car was involved in a minor low-speed accident with a bus in California, however unlike previous occasions this does appear to be the fault of the Google vehicle. There were no injuries.

Various Google vehicles have already logged many miles driving autonomously, and the few accidents that have occurred usually been where some other driver rear ends or side swipes a Google vehicle. This recent incident was a first.
In a report on the matter, Google says its vehicle did just that but encountered some sandbags blocking its path near a storm drain. As such, it needed to merge back into "traffic" to go around it which is when the accident happened.

Outta my way, meatsack!
