The vehicle was using self-driving technology developed by French company Navya, and typically travels at about 15 miles per hour as it carries people along the Las Vegas strip.
There were no injuries reported, and the shuttle didn't suffer any major damage, according to a report by a local Fox news station.
Before you think this proves that self-driving cars have no place in this world, the shuttle wasn't at fault for the accident. The driverless shuttle had come to a stop when the accident occurred. The statement finished by saying that had the truck used the same sensing equipment as the bus, the accident would have been avoided.
"A little bit of that looking around and you know wondering if it was going to stop, and 'Oh my gosh, there's a vehicle behind us, kind of little hesitation, '" she said.

The driver of the lorry which crashed with the bus was subsequently given a ticket.
According to the BBC, the bus - the first of its kind to carry passengers in the USA - was travelling at a low speed in Las Vegas when it collided with a lorry.

Before it crashed, dozens of people had lined up to get a free trip on a 0.6-mile loop around Fremont East, Las Vegas, including Nascar driver Danica Patrick and magic duo Penn and Teller. The shuttle comes from Navya, which actually demonstrated the technology earlier this year around the same time as the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show.
