Gotta love that...  But what struck me was the woman standing there peering under the hood of her nearly submerged car.  What was she hoping to see and/or fix?  Did she really think that maybe a loose battery cable was her problem?

The woman was trying to add water to the radiator of course... Grin
I think bus driver shoulda been fired... could have caused car to roll on to the woman, or possibly further swamp the car, and who knows if there was a child  in the car... If the bus driver was my employee, that person would at least have been yelled at for quite a while... Grin

What about the passenger that was ringing the bell to get off at the intersection in the middle of the puddle?

Unless maybe it was some true emergency, unit 62 seems to have pulled a really dumb move.

The "battery checker," seemed to have no concept that the large approaching wave could swamp her, she didn't prepare by bracing herself or anything.  Geeez.  Huh

And no one has mentioned the idiot who'd driven his car onto the railway track...

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.
