Electric ‘self-driving’ BMW test car veers into oncoming traffic leaving one dead and nine injured in mass pile-up in Germany
Partly automated BMW iX test car swerved out of its lane in Reutlingen and brushed oncoming Citroen which resulted in the BMW hitting a Mercedes-Benz van head-on, resulting in the death of a 33-year-old woman in that vehicle.
The 70-year-old Citroen driver lost control of her car and crashed into another vehicle with two people on board.
BMW confirmed the crash involved one of its models with Level 2 driver assistance systems. Such systems can brake automatically, accelerate and, unlike Level 1 systems, take over steering.
