This video shows a Google self-driving car crashing into bus

Video has surfaced that shows a Valentine’s Day accident where a Google self-driving car was sideswiped after it pulled into the path of a city bus.

The accident is the first time an autonomous vehicle has been to blame for an accident.

The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority released the video today, which shows camera angles from both outside and inside the city bus throughout the accident. The videos don’t show a great amount of detail, but they give the viewer a good idea about how the collision occurred.
