School Bus Getting Towed – Epic Fail



I was one the bus ride home last week when my bus driver turned down the street leading into my neighborhood. On the corner, bus 2143, an International CE, was sitting broken down.

When I got home, I turned on my two-way radio and watched with binoculars down the street as bus 3112, a first gen Blue Bird Vision, came to the rescue. The driver in 3112 swapped buses with 2143 and she continued her route while the other driver in the broken down bus sat and waited for help. It wasn’t until two hours later when I was mowing my neighbor’s lawn that I saw a tow truck coming down the street with the bus hitched up to it. The driver of tow truck pulled a pretty cool turnabout and from there towed the bus back to base, about half an hour away.

Supposedly the breakdown had something to do with a broken coolant line or something similar, and it was overheating. Today I heard the driver call in from a different bus, so I’d assume this bus is still down.

Semi crashes into tow truck



Shocking dash camera video showed the moment a semi barreled into a tow truck near the Mitchell Interchange on Monday, Aug. 26. The tow truck driver suffered a broken leg, two broken ribs, and a cut above his eye, but he was expected to be OK. Based on the extensive damage to his truck, his co-workers said he shouldn’t have survived. http://via.fox6now.com/ihTgm
