Bus crashes in Trikala, driver nowhere to be seen


One of four driverless buses that started operating in the central city of Trikala in September veered off the road Thursday and crashed into a street kiosk.

It remained unclear what provoked the accident, which caused minor damage and no injuries.

Trikala was chosen for a European pilot program to test a driverless bus in real traffic conditions for the first time, part of a project aimed at weaning cities off fossil fuel dependency over the coming decades.
