    The report was written by Google, which has been testing two dozen Lexus SUVs outfitted with sensors and cameras near the tech firm's Silicon Valley headquarters.

    It was posted today on the DMV website. Google wrote that its car was trying to get around some sandbags on a street when its left front struck the bus' right side. The car was going 2 mph (3 kph), the bus 15 mph.
