riding the bus


This surprising picture was in the Chicago Tribune today:

The crash happened at about 5:40 a.m. on Tuesday.  I'm not a morning person but this would get me going.
The 36-year-old female bus driver was cited for negligent driving and has a Dec. 31 court date in traffic court.  I'm thinking they could also cite her for remodeling a home without a city permit.

The people on the bus (as I write this that kid's song popped into my head) were injured but are now reported all in good condition.  The family (single mother with her four sons) in the home were not hurt, but I suspect wakened up in a rude way.

This sure could of been much worst.  Good thing no gas line was broken resulting in a fire.
Maybe riding in the back of bus is better.

Here's another shot with color:

@yorksnbeans - always better when there's no serious injuries - I don't know if saw an earlier post of a wiener truck smashing into a house - those odd accidents are humorous.
@unknown mami - yeah that's the song - new verse - and the wheels stopped going around and around.
