Cruise didn’t tell the California DMV the full story of its robotaxi’s pedestrian strike at first.

Vice Motherboard reported yesterday that Cruise’s email summary of the accident said the car “hard-braked but was unable to stop” before hitting a pedestrian. But it didn’t mention that the car then pulled over, dragging the person with it.

California’s DMV revoked the company’s self-driving license. Cruise then halted robotaxi operation, later expanded the pause to include supervised and manually-driven Cruise trips for safety review.
