Lyft put "an acquisition offer on the table" for Otto, the self-driving truck startup that is at the center of the Waymo vs. Uber trial, Otto co-founder Lior Ron testified on Wednesday. He added that discussions stalled because Lyft wasn't interested in trucks, only cars.

Why it matters: Lyft's interest in Otto was previously unknown.
