Cruise CEO, Kyle Vogt, resigns amidst regulatory changes

The resignation follows a string of missteps by Cruise. As CNBC previously reported, the company recently issued a recall affecting 950 of its robotaxis following a pedestrian collision in San Francisco last month. Cruise had lost its permits to operate driverless vehicles in California without a human safety driver on board as a result of that pedestrian collision.

According to its most recent quarterly update, GM has lost roughly $1.9 billion on Cruise between January and September, including $732 million in the third quarter alone.

The post here emphasizes multiple times that it was a pedestrian collision, but omits the driver who actually performed a hit & run and ran the person over.
