Self-driving shuttle crashes in Las Vegas hours after launch

A driverless shuttle in Las Vegas crashed Wednesday after it was launched only hours earlier.

The shuttle crashed just before noon not far from the Las Vegas Strip, less than two hours after officials held an unveiling ceremony to promote the vehicle.

Dozens of people had lined up to board the shuttle, but no one was injured in the accident, which saw the bus collide with a semi-truck, KSNV reported.

The shuttle was built by Navaya, a French company that is also operating it on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, not far from a manufacturing facility it has established in the city of Saline.
