Ever hear a story and say to yourself “that can’t be true”? I had that experience recently while reading the news.
Reports out of Jersey City, NJ reveal that five passengers aboard a NJ Transit bus were injured when the bus was struck by a dump truck. Amazingly, when the bus driver honked at the dump truck to signal for it to stop, the driver of the truck sped through a red light and fled the scene. Fortunately, the recklessness of the trucker did not result in further accidents or injury. However, I could not locate a report indicating that the dump truck was ever located.
It’s outrageous that anyone would act in such a callous and reckless manner. But a commercial driver piloting a behemoth like a dump truck?! Amazing. If anyone has information on this trucker, I hope they come forward. Help us all, but getting this guy off the road! The injured passengers were reportedly transported to nearby hospital for treatment.
