The video was hidden from regulators due to the bad internet

The case of a man accidentally pulled over and dragged under a pedestrian: A cruise official denies the incident and vowed to sue the agency

A number of executives have resigned in the wake of the incident, including co-founders Kyle Vogt and Dan Kan. The company recalled all of its vehicles and paused its operations nationwide to appoint a new chief safety officer. GM has cut funding to the company and has laid off nearly a quarter of its employees.

The firm says it is a “fundamentally flawed approach” to assume a video can “speak for itself” and remove the need to disclose all details to regulators and government officials. “As one Cruise employee stated in a text message to another employee about this matter, our ‘leaders have failed us,’” the report states.

According to the third party report released by Cruise today, technical issues contributed to the crash. The self-driving car pulled over and dragged the woman underneath because it classified the crash as a side-impact collision, despite the fact that its software detected, perceived, and tracked both the pedestrian and human-driven car. Cruise recalled its software in November because of technical issues.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles halted Cruise’s license to operate in the state because of the crash. The company has been accused of withholding information about the video of the incident that showed the vehicle dragging the pedestrian as it tried to pull over. Cruise denies the allegation, claiming it showed the agency the whole video.

According to a report compiled by a law firm, Cruise tried to send a 90-second video to regulators of an incident in which one of their self-driving cars dragged a pedestrian but was hampered by internet connections.
