Google Street View driver Alexander Spurr was allegedly minding his own business in Little Rock, Arkansas — and by that, we mean taking constant photographs of peoples’ homes — when he suddenly realized he was driving the wrong way down Tyler Street. He reportedly swung his vehicle around, side-swiping another car and creating a Google public relations disaster.
The crash occurred Wednesday night at 6 p.m., according to Arkansas Online. It caused a total of $3,500 in damages, and a police report cited Mr. Spurr with “careless or prohibited driving.”
“Something better come out of Google’s pocket for this,” the driver of the side-swiped car said in a moment of righteous anger.
Maybe if Google simply replaced its drivers with cars that drive themselves, it wouldn’t have been a problem. After all, those cars have yet to cause a single accident or even be pulled over.
