A crowd surrounded a driverless Waymo car and set it ablaze in San Francisco, California firefighters say.

Videos on X, formerly Twitter, captured by an onlooker show the incident in Chinatown.

One shows people breaking windows with skateboards while the crowd cheers and shouts. Later videos show people standing back from the blazing vehicle.

San Francisco firefighters told KNTV the incident took place around 9:25 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10. Waymo officials told the station no one was inside the vehicle at the time.

In another post on X, San Francisco firefighters said a crowd surrounded the car, broke windows and sprayed graffiti before lighting a firework inside, catching it on fire.

A large crowd celebrated the first day of the Lunar New Year in Chinatown on Saturday, SFGate reported.
