Bus hit twice on same city block
Published: Saturday, April 07, 2007
It was an unlucky day Sunday for one OC Transpo driver whose bus was hit twice by two different cars in one block, in the space of 40 minutes.
The number 8 Hull bus was heading north on Alta Vista Drive near the intersection of Kilborn Avenue when it was rear-ended by a car at 6:18 a.m.
The front of the car was damaged and the bus was dented, but no injuries were reported.
Forty minutes later, the bus driver continued on his route but, after driving less than one block, the bus was struck again by a different car.
Again, the car suffered damage and the bus suffered yet another dent. No injuries were reported.
Poor driving conditions and tailgating were reasons for both crashes, according to Ottawa police.
