Gov. Doug Ducey then suspended Uber's ability to test self-driving vehicles on roadways in Arizona, specifically citing the fatal crash in his decision. It released a video of the moments before the collision. 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.

An autonomous auto being tested by Waymo was involved in a serious collision in the Phoenix, Arizona suburb of Chandler, when a vehicle being driven by a human swerved to avoid another vehicle, and left the human operator in the Waymo with minor injuries.

Waymo in the auto on the driver's seat was the man who received minor injuries. The Honda city ends up hitting the Google's autonomous vehicle and both vehicles look severely damaged in the images.

Video was released Friday showing a vehicle jumping a median and colliding with a Google-owned Waymo self-driving minivan in Arizona. The local police noted that there were minor injuries sustained from the incident. As the Honda swerved, it entered the westbound lanes of Chandler Boulevard and ended up hitting the Waymo minivan. The vehicles were towed from the scene on flatbed trucks, the Waymo minivan covered by a tarp. Police are investigating the accident, per that report. For now, it seems like the autonomous vehicle was not directly responsible for the crash.
