NTSB investigated the collision of a self-driving shuttle bus and a truck that happened in Las Vegas, NV on Wednesday, November 7, 2017.

The NTSB investigated this crash to better understand how self-driving vehicles interact with their environment and the other human-driven vehicles around them. While there have been other crashes of self-driving vehicles, this crash is the first of a self-driving vehicle operating in public service. Our decision to investigate this crash aligns with our process of deciding to investigate those highway crashes that can advance our knowledge of safety issues.


No on-scene media briefings are planned for this investigation; any updates will be announced via Twitter @NTSB_Newsroom.
