Car manages to hit two vehicles as it races away from a bus it had already collided with

Google is working with police in Indonesia after one of its Street View cars crashed into two buses and a truck in Bogor.

It first hit a bus and then, on seeing the driver react angrily, drove off speedily only to hit another bus and a truck.

An Indonesian forum site has images (pictured) of a bashed up Google car, with the entire windscreen caved in, a dislodged front bumper and dents covering the vehicle.

“We take incidents like this very seriously. We’re working closely with local authorities to address the situation,” a Google representative told the AFP news agency.

This isn’t the first time Google has been called out on alleged crashes of involving its Street View cars. In January, it had to explain images that appeared to show a poor little donkey dead on a dirt road in Botswana.

But Google said the donkey was just having a nap and the animal was alive and well.

Google has already had enough trouble over the privacy implications of its Street View project, especially as it scooped up a load of Wi-Fi data illegally. It has just lost an appeal to have a case over that issue quashed.
