WATCH: Robo-Taxi Wrecks With Semi

Another instance of self-driving vehicles causing chaos on the roads is making news once again.

According to InsideEVs, a self-driving taxi was in an accident with a semi truck in San Francisco this week. The robo-taxi belonged to Cruise, General Motors’ autonomous driving division, but had no passengers in it at the time of the incident.

Bystander Alf Santos recorded the aftermath of the accident and posted the video on Twitter.

Watch below:

In response to Alf’s video, Cruise offered their take on the incident. They said, “We’re actively investigating, but we can confirm that the truck attempted a left turn from the right lane while our car was passing. The AV came to a complete stop to avoid a collision when it detected the truck beginning to move, but the truck continued and struck our vehicle.”

This latest incident comes after multiple reports of driverless taxis blocking traffic in San Francisco.

What do you think, truckers? How do you feel about having to watch out for driverless vehicles on the road?

What do you think of driverless autonomous vehicles?
