Google Street View Car Driver Hits 3 Vehicles and Tried to Flee the Scene

street-view-hit2A Google Street View car driver has been reported to have hit two buses and a truck, and tried to escape. The accident occured in somehere Bogor, Indonesia.

The police, in a statement, said that “the driver hit one bus, panicked, and tried to flee the scene, only to then hit another bus and a truck. Yes, that’s a total of three vehicles. It’s unclear if anyone was hurt. “

The BBC shares statements from the police and from Google:

“We take incidents like this very seriously. We’re working closely with local authorities to address the situation.”

It would be recalled that a similar accident occurred earlier this year where an image on Street View appeared to show a donkey that had been run over. Google apparently denied this on their Google Maps blog . Google said that “while it looked like its car might have been involved in a hit and run, it suggested that the donkey was just “lying in the path – perhaps enjoying a dust bath – before moving safely aside as our car drove past.”

Google claimed that the donkey was “alive and well.”

In case you’re thinking if it’s a trick to show that self-driving cars are safer than regular cars, well, Google has had an accident with one of those too.
