    In this case, apparently, a human would never have avoided the accident either as the other vehicle came across the automated car from out of the sun, so to speak, so the driver would have been as blinded as the sensors were.

    Some of these self driving cars can actually kill on purpose from a decision it makes, for example, in a inevitable collision, if veering away would save the driver but harm others, the car would make a decision to harm you instead because it means that less people are harmed.
