WASHINGTON, June 13 (Reuters) -Alphabet's Waymo GOOGL.O said Thursday it would recall 672 of its self-driving vehicles after one of its driverless vehicles struck a wooden utility pole in Phoenix, Arizona in May.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regulator opened an investigation in May after 22 reports of its robotaxis exhibiting driving behavior that potentially violated traffic safety laws, or demonstrating other "unexpected behavior," including 17 collisions.

Waymo said the May Arizona collision occurred in an alleyway while executing a low-speed pullover maneuver.

Waymo said the recall remedy included a software update to improve vehicles' detection response to pole or pole-like permanent objects, and robust mapping updates and improvements that have been installed in all of the vehicles.
