GOOGLE STREET VIEW CAR IN 'ACCIDENT'

Police said the car driver hit the first bus, appeared to "panic" when the bus driver responded angrily, and tried to drive off.

But in doing so the vehicle hit a second bus and then the truck, according to local media reports.

It is unclear whether anybody was hurt at the scene. Google has confirmed that an incident has taken place.

"We take incidents like this very seriously. We're working closely with local authorities to address the situation," Vishnu Mahmud, head of communications for Google in Indonesia, told news agency AFP.

Pictures of the incident were posted to an Indonesian website by an eyewitness.

Donkey
The tech giant has been taking photos of the region for its mapping service since November 2012.

Earlier this year Google denied reports that one of its Street View cars had run over a donkey in Botswana.

Street View photos appeared to show the animal walking by the roadside in one shot and then lying on its side behind the car in another.

"Because of the way our 360-degree imagery is put together, it looked to some that our car had been involved in an unseemly hit-and-run, leaving the humble beast stranded in the road," wrote Kei Kawai, Group Product Manager, Google Maps in a blog post at the time.

"The donkey was lying in the path - perhaps enjoying a dust bath - before moving safely aside as our car drove past.

"I'm pleased to confirm the donkey is alive and well," he added.
