But a good Samaritan’s quick-thinking action helped save the driver’s life.
Kenny Ferree told WXPI-TV he was driving down the street with his wife when he suddenly heard a loud noise and saw yellow debris scattering everywhere.
A bus had crashed and wrapped around a pole, with the vehicle so mangled and smashed it was barely recognizable. Tires were detached, and a portion of the automobile appeared separated from its body.
Ferree immediately pulled over and rushed to the driver, who was, fortunately, the only person on the bus after having recently dropped children off at a Pittsburgh Public Schools facility.
He crawled into the wreckage to offer comfort. Ferree’s description of the scene is a startling depiction that sheds light on the dire nature of the situation.
“When you looked over, you could not believe that anything or anybody was left,” Ferree told WXPI-TV. “I saw the windshield. The front hood assembly, the front axle, just rolling down the street, this big plume of smoke. It was a school bus.”
He added, “It was split like a banana.”
The driver had blood streaming down his face, so Ferree wrapped his sweatshirt around the man’s head and talked to him until help arrived at the scene.
Others also openly pondered how anyone could have endured the ordeal.
“Quite frankly, if anybody looks at this, you’ve got to wonder how the driver even survived,” KDKA-TV reporter Ross Guidotti said while reporting Wednesday outside of the crash scene.
The driver is reportedly in stable condition but was seriously injured during the crash. Continue to pray for the driver’s recovery as police investigate what unfolded.
