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 auto, and left the human operator in the Waymo with minor injuries.

The eastbound Honda veered over a raised median and into the westbound lanes of Chandler Boulevard. There was an occupant in the Waymo vehicle sitting into he drivers' seat who has sustained minor injuries. "Both the Waymo vehicle and the Honda were towed from the scene".

In a statement, Chandler Police said that a Honda sedan swerved from its lane to avoid a collision with another auto. According to the police, there are some minors injuries to the drivers of both the vehicles without any serious impact.

Police spokesman Seth Tyler said it is believed that this is the first Waymo collision in Chandler this year.

However, the vehicle that was involved in the crash reportedly had a driver behind the wheel at the time.

According to Waymo this evening, the vehicle was in manual mode, not driving autonomously, on Chandler Boulevard approaching North Los Felix Friv e/North Hearthstone Way in Chandler. The incident took place in Chandler, Arizona, one of the cities in which Alphabet-owned Waymo is running trials of its autonomous vehicle technology.

The Waymo vehicle was traveling at a slow speed and in autonomous mode.

This is the second known self-driving auto crash in the Phoenix area in the past two months. That vehicle was also in autonomous vehicle mode when the collision occurred.

Waymo did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The incident-two months after an Uber self-driving vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in nearby Tempe-is still under investigation, but early indications are that it was not the fault of the autonomous auto.

As a result, Arizona governor Doug Ducey ordered the testing of Uber cars to be suspended but didn't ban all self-driving vehicles.
