School Bus Crashes Into House in Northwest Dade - UPDATED
What are you doing in this house, school bus? School buses don't belong in houses. Go back on the street where you belong, school bus.
Oh, it was all that asshole SUV's fault? You really are a jerk, SUV. Thankfully, you didn't cause any serious injuries to humans, SUV. Updated.
Yes, yesterday around 3 p.m., a Miami-Dade Public Schools bus crashed into a home at NW 19th Avenue and 45th Street. The wheels on the bus were going 'round and 'round when a driver in a black SUV cruised through a stop sign and crashed into the bus. The bus then rammed into the home.
"I saw the guy," a witness told WSVN about the SUV driver. "The guy was on the phone talking. I just heard them say that he ran the stop sign, and he was talking on the phone, and next thing you know he disappeared."
The SUV's driver got out of his car and fled on foot. Police are still looking for him.
Luckily, no one on the bus or in the home was injured.
Two special-needs children and two adults, including the driver, walked away without injuries.
Meanwhile, Dominique McDuffie and her 87-year-old grandfather, Coils McDuffie, were in the house.
Dominique had just left her bedroom moments before the bus rammed into its walls.
"My grandfather, he actually thought the house exploded," Dominique told WSVN. "I'm like, no, a bus is in the house! I said, 'Lets go. We need to get out.'"
Neither was injured.
