The autonomous care by Apple got into its very first crash one week ago in Sunnyvale, according to reported filed by Apple with the California Department of Motor Vehicles this week, The Verge said on Friday. Still, it does not appear that Apple was at fault for the collision as the software was very much intact.

According to the details of the accident, the vehicle in question was in autonomous mode at the time. The Apple car carrying special sensors and equipment was hit from behind by a Nissan car. Both vehicles sustained damage but neither passengers of both vehicles received any injuries, the report said.

Apple so far has a fleet of nearly 45 test self-driving vehicles in California. The company has also partnered with Volkswagen to help create a fleet of self-driving employee shuttles for its Cupertino campus.

The self-driving cars, advertised as the best bet for safe future travel, however, have recently been involved in some fatal accidents. March 18 record an Arizona woman was killed by a self-driving Uber car. Five days later, the occupant of a Tesla Model X died after the vehicle hit a highway barrier in California and caught fire. In 2016, another occupant of a Tesla running on its autopilot system in Florida was killed in a collision with a truck, and the Tesla car failed to stop.
