The Mass-transit-acre Volume 2

It's been over 6 months since my last installment of the mass-transit-acre. That's not to say there haven't been accidents in the meantime, but this week's accidents were especially avoidable and/or destructive. Luckily, no one was killed.

Feb 2: Port Authority bus drives into a parked PennDOT salt truck. The driver received severe leg injuries.

Feb 3: This morning a crash involving a Port Authority bus and a car at CCAC in West Mifflin left the driver of the car with serious injuries.

To keep us all a little safer, the US Department of Transportation outlawed truck drivers and bus drivers from texting while driving their vehicles.

Now, if we can only get them to outlaw reading the newspaper...

Did anyone ever figure out what caused those accidents, or did it just get buried under all the snow stories of the last two weeks?
