The video clearly shows the lady behind the wheel with her eyes closed.

A jury of its peers being six each of Alexa and Siri?

Brings up a good question though. With a self driving car, will the
passengers be liable in cases like this? Maybe just the passenger that
was in the "driver's" seat?

We have enough problems with distracted drivers. I am not looking
forward to having to worry about whether the driver has been hacked by
the russians or is rebooting for maintenance...

I know enough to know that I don't know.

It can be complex, blending civil and criminal liability
among drivers, vehicle owners, employers/employees, agents
and so on.:

I believe that in the U.S. the practice is to sue the guy with the big
bucks. So unless it is someone like Bill Gates driving you will
probably go for the vehicle manufacturer or the city that provides the
roadway :-)
