Usually it's the medium who crosses over.

Meanwhile, a Waymo vehicle gets into an accident... when another car crosses into oncoming traffic and hits it.
I like how a driver crosses over the medium and hits an oncoming Waymo van and the headline is "Self-driving car crash in Arizona".
A Waymo van which wasn't even in automatic mode. But the news is always looking for man bites dog, so...

So the Uber AV fatality: The vehicle kinda waffled about what the object in the road was, but had picked it up at least 6 seconds before impact. But by the time it decided it was a bike and would be in the AV's path, it was down to 1.5 seconds from impact, at which point it was an emergency braking issue, an aspect that the Uber system left to the human behind the wheel by design, to "reduce the potential for erratic vehicle behavior". Of course, the vehicles didn't really have a way of notifying the human that they needed to emergency brake RIGHT NOW...

This is really a bad look for Uber overall. Yeah, it's a messup by the AV, but the fact that they made a decision like that in their design is a huge problem.
