Buss Launches of Bridge in New York

Quote:
An articulated bus dramatically plunged off a bridge in New York City late Thursday, leaving its front half hanging over a highway ramp, its fall broken only by the road below.

The driver was seriously injured in the crash just after 11 p.m. near an interchange of the Cross Bronx and Major Deegan expressways, and seven passengers suffered minor injuries, fire officials said. They were taken to hospitals. No other vehicles were involved.

One part of the bus — essentially two buses connected by a pivot that allows it to navigate turns — remained on the bridge, with the other half vertical, its smashed front end resting on a ramp connecting the two expressways.

Re: Buss Launches of Bridge in New York

Chris, this is the first clear picture of this I have seen. Most of them, particularly on the TV news, are blurry and you can't even make the bus out.
I hope a video of this surfaces.
On the CBS news, they said the bus driver refused to take post-accident alcohol and drug tests. I assume that would mean instant termination. But if he was on drugs or alcohol, that would be termination also, so it doesn't really matter much.

The 55-year-old driver broke his jaw in the crash and refused to submit to a drug and alcohol test after arriving at the hospital.

Re: Buss Launches of Bridge in New York

The fact it was connected like that probably slowed the fall and saved some lives.
