    hopefully no more such events

  • Facts Please?

    The driver did hit the bus, but only because the bus ran the stop sign. That’s the only way the vehicles end in that position at any even semi-reasonable speed.

  • Anonymous

    Unless both vehicles ended up turning 90 degrees as a result of the collision, the SUV was on the street with the stop sign.
