A Human Driver Caused a Collision During a Self-Driving Shuttle's Debut

Speaking of which, the main thing we're wondering is why the damn thing didn't back up when it sensed the truck getting too close-and one passenger apparently had the same reaction.

None of the eight passengers aboard the driverless vehicle suffered injuries and neither did the truck driver. Until now. Officials have revealed that Navya's people carrier was involved in a minor collision with a human-driven truck on the day of its Las Vegas debut.

The future is headed to Las Vegas in the form of a driverless, electric bus that will begin shuttling passengers along a half-mile downtown route beginning Wednesday morning at 10 a.m.

But, just an hour into its year-long trial (which follows a successful stint in January) the shuttle was hit by a delivery truck that was backing up.

Ex-TV Anchor Says Son Was Sexually Assaulted by Spacey in 2016
Spacey has not issued a response to any of the allegations beyond Rapp. "No other information is available at this time". Lesbian writer Jenny Hagel said on Late Night With Seth Meyers 'I have a lot of problems with Kevin Spacey's statement.

"The shuttle did what it was supposed to do, in that it's sensors registered the truck and the shuttle stopped to avoid the accident", the city said in a statement. The issue here is that while the Navya shuttle bus was able to come to a complete stop using its autonomous tech, it was unable to simply back up a few feet and get out of the reversing semi's way. Testing of the shuttle will continue during the 12-month pilot in the downtown Innovation District. In addition to surveying the shuttle's riders, AAA will examine how others sharing the streets react to it - including pedestrians and cyclists. This pilot builds on Keolis' limited shuttle launch in downtown Las Vegas in early 2017; today's launch will be the first self-driving vehicle to be fully integrated with a city's traffic infrastructure.

The shuttle makes a continuous loop in downtown Las Vegas, and the rides are free.

A spokesperson for AAA, which is working with Las Vegas and Keolis to sponsor the program and survey driver attitudes toward autonomous vehicles, confirmed on Twitter that the accident was actually the truck driver's fault.
