Alexander Spurr, 28, the driver of the Google car, realized he had turned onto a one-way street, started to turn around, and hit the second vehicle in the side, spinning it around, according to the accident report

The driver of the second car, 22-year-old Dylan Case, told police he had a green-light and that Spurr must have run a red-light.

In the accident report, police note Spurr's "careless prohibited driving." 

Case later visited the hospital for a cat scan and X-rays, and told Smoking Gun that he had bruised ribs and whiplash. He said he expects to miss upwards of three weeks of work.  

"Something better come out of Google's pocket for this," Case told Arkansas Online.
