Google self-driving vehicles have been involved in at least a dozen crashes since February of 2015, according to DMV records. The Mountain View-based tech giant has blamed nearly all the crashes on other drivers.
Only one of the crashes has been blamed on the self-driving car. In February, an autonomous vehicle struck a VTA transit bus carrying more than a dozen people. No injuries were reported in that crash.MORE NEWS: UPDATE: Police Shootings Protest In Oakland Turns Violent; Windows Broken, Fires Ignited; Businesses Vandalized
