A Cruise robotic taxi collided with a fire engine in San Francisco. Cruz wrote on the messaging platform the California Department of Transportation (DMV) on Friday that it is investigating “recent incidents of concern” involving GM’s autonomous vehicles.
The agency has now asked Cruise to immediately cut its fleet of active vehicles in half until the investigation is complete. “The DMV reserves the right to suspend or revoke testing and/or deployment permits following an investigation of the matter,” the agency said in a statement. Until the investigation is complete, Cruise will now have up to 50 robot taxis on the road during the day and up to 150 at night.
Police said the sole passenger in the autonomous vehicle was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
