The facts of the cases are often important.
Obviously we need to know a lot more about this particular incident.
To what standard is the self-driving car held in comparison to a human driver? Would the law in most states hold the responsible party for the self driven car to the same level as that of a reasonably competent human? Or to a higher level given the (usually) higher degree of automatic safety equipment in the autonomous vehicle? Complicated for sure.
