Following an investigation into a collision involving a self-driving car owned by Waymo and a Honda sedan in Arizona, police have determined that the driver of the sedan ran a red light before the accident.

The details: NBC Bay Area reports that "Chandler Police Department spokesman Seth Tyler said that the Waymo-owned Chrysler minivan was in manual mode and slowing for the red light when the collision occurred Friday." The accident injured the driver of the Waymo vehicle and caused the test-car "significant damage."
