General Motors' Cruise robotaxi unit could face $1.5 million in fines and additional sanctions over its failure to disclose details of an Oct. 2 accident in which a robotaxi dragged a pedestrian 20 feet (6.1 meters) after being struck by another vehicle, a California agency said.

Separately, GM Chief Executive Mary Barra said on Monday that the automaker's external review of Cruise's safety will last into the first quarter of 2024.

The company is also reviewing Cruise's handling of interactions with regulators and first responders as part of a pair of external reviews. "We will be transparent. I am not going to rush either of them," Barra said.
