Do Autonomous Vehicles Get In Crashes or Accidents?

Brad Templeton has a detailed discussion of the issues that arise from collisions involving self-driving cars. The piece is long and worth reading, but why does he call the incidents "accidents"? There is sustained effort to replace the commonly used accident with crash (see here) to more accurately reflect that crashes are preventable, though some more so than others. With autonomous vehicles major sources of crashes such as drunk driving will be eliminated (unless Bender takes the wheel), but there will still be some crashes. These should not be called accidents.
