Posted on 01/27/2012 10:24:56 AM PST by TSgt
So they are holding a news conference about the Cincinnati Casino Construction collapse when a Ride Go Bus drives into the news conference and side swipes a news van.
The driver, female minority, parks the bus, gets out and begins yelling at the folks holding a news conference. She basically says it's there fault she hit a PARKED vehicle and that she is just trying to do her job.
You can't make this stuff up!
She actually pulls up and blows her horn!
I’m howling right now!
What is a “live truck?”
Does it needs a mechanic or a doctor?
My Daddy once told me the story of the town drunk who plowed into neighboring town's drunk out on a lonely public road in the high desert. First words out of his mouth was "What the hell are you doing on my road?
And no one had the guts to do anything but cower when the certain ethnic female bus driver began giving them heck.
And her job is safe, because it’s virtually impossible to fire an angry black woman.
We interrupt this transmission to bring you this bit of braking news !
An angry public employee black woman...
The GoBus Intercity Bus Service is a collaborated effort between Ohio Department of Transportation, The City of Athens, and Hocking Athens Perry Community Action. The project is part of a nationwide effort to connect rural areas and urban centers that result in connections of greater regional, statewide, and national significance.
The service was initiated by the Federal Transit Administration and the Ohio Department of Transportation. The City of Athens received funding from these organizations to manage and promote this service to help link Athens, Ohio and neighboring rural communities to the cities of Columbus, Ohio and Cincinnati, Ohio. They also received federal stimulus money to purchase three new deluxe motor coaches to operate along these routes. The City of Athens appointed Hocking Athens Perry Community Action, a non-profit corporation dedicated to the needs of the region, as the project administrator.
The buses run each route twice daily with connections to Greyhounds nationwide system and the Port Columbus International Airport providing Southeast Ohio residents with greater access and mobility.
Add one more to the unemployment list.
Right: this despite the fact that the bus first came to a stop, THEN hit the van and ended up on the sidewalk!
“Add one more to the unemployment list.”
I’d bet not.
That bitch has been on the victim-hood plantation since she got her first high fat meal. Of course the bus hitting anything will never be her fault as it is always the white peoples fault.
Another big BO supporter I am sure.
Hey white folks, stop your damned cowering every time one of these cows starts to bitch it only feeds their lack of responsibility for their actions.
I wish the reporters would have picked up their cameras and mics and went to interview the driver.
“Maam, please explain to the viewers what caused this accident. Are you going to sue?”
BTW - Did anyone else make the connection? The conference is about an accident that stopped a construction project. He was talking about the investigation and the impact as a public union bus driver first stops, honks her bus horn, then proceeds to drive her bus into a parked news trucks and within feet of stationary pedestrians.
I hope OSHA investigates this complicated accident.
Someone’s gettin’ fired. She can sue for “discrimination”, but it’s gonna be a tough fight.
I have had close calls with arrogant bus drivers in Seattle. It’s just another thing I love about rural Kentucky. :)
Face it.....what’d you expect her to say?
“I’m an incompetent affirmative-action hire who should be scrubbing toilets and a loud mouthed bitch, at that!”???
—And her job is safe, because its virtually impossible to fire an angry black woman.—
Normally I would agree. The video is rather damning, however.
“There is no doubt in my mind that she actually thinks the crash is not her fault...”
Could get interesting. There’s the principle of being the last person able to avoid the accident (bus driver), but there’s also the principle where the person comitting the crime (illegal parking by the live truck?) is responsible for anything that derives from the crime.
At least, that’s what’s going through my mind.
Everyone knows it is impossible for a protected black female minority to do any wrong.
With the exception of freeways, turnpikes, etc., when you hit a stopped vehicle, it is ALWAYS your fault.
The only exception (other than the one at the beginning of this post), is that you can prove that the other vehicle pulled out in front of you and stopped, not giving you enough time to respond.
The video makes it pretty clear that is not what happened here. ;-)
In a normal world, this bus driver would be removed from her job, not least for her attitude and willingness to intentionally hit a stopped car.
Other buses made the turn during the news conference but she didn’t and she left the scene of the accident.
9 News van hit by bus during news conference on casino collapse
No was injured as a result of the accident, but the 9 News van was pushed back around a foot as a result of the collision.
Minor damage was sustained to the front left bumper of the van and the right side panel of the bus.
Other busses had made the turn during the time surrounding the conference, but it appeared this bus had cut the turn short, causing the collision.
The driver of the bus honked several times while 9 News was broadcasting the conference on live TV.
The crash remains under investigation, but the driver of the bus backed up after the incident and continued away from the conference.
If she crashed in to a parked vehicle then the crash is her fault, whether the news van was illegally parked or not.
“...the driver of the bus backed up after the incident and continued away from the conference.”
That’ll be a nasty citation and a visit to see the Judge. Affirmative action be damned, she ain’t gettin’ outta that.
*** Face it.....whatd you expect her to say?
Im an incompetent affirmative-action hire who should be scrubbing toilets and a loud mouthed bitch, at that!??? ***
A little honesty would be refreshing!
Future TSA cavity search inspector career, for sure!!
Somethings been damned already, and it ain't A-A.
That will change, eventually.
The Soviet Union fell, and A-A will too. We're not there yet though.
There will be more incidents like this one. Sooner or later there will be an on-camera fatality.
This will go against her record and it’s been recorded by live TV. She’s trying to set up her defense to whatever safety board that she may have to appear before.
Well. First of all, it looks to me like the press was standing where she wanted to drive.
This wasn’t the cops with lights flashing, it was the media.
The woman might have a case that the media was blocking the right of way.
I worked at a private liberal University and I can tell you that is absolutely correct! My supervisor hated to even entertain the thought of hiring a minority woman because she knew once they were hired, they couldn’t be fired. And these women knew it. Our working hours were 8:30 to 5, but it was not uncommon for them to come parading in on a daily basis at 9 or 9:30 and leave at 4, and no one would say a word. The professors were afraid of them, and would come ask one of us to type letters for them because their black secretaries wouldn’t do them. One black woman dean actually quit and then sued the university for discrimination.

Right of way? They are pedestrians and she hit a parked vehicle! Are you smoking Mitt Romney’s crack?
Well. First of all, it looks to me like the press was standing where she wanted to drive.Well, that is a point.
This wasnt the cops with lights flashing, it was the media.

Media people tend to think that their jobs are much more important than the convenience of "the little people."
I wouldn't doubt that the media van was parked illegally.
So what we have here is basically an incident between members of two priveledges groups.
So, like peons everywhere, I will say "let the bosses work it out amongst themselves."
I still think the driver will not be touched in any way. It doesn't matter that this was caught in camera. It doesn't matter what traffic regulations say about who's at fault when a moving vehicle plows into a parked vehicle. She's safe on the black square. Her job is safe too.
My guess is that this goes into the memory hole.
I have friends who did consulting for Hamilton county in Ohio. They noted minorities who were in out of the way cubicals that surfed the internet all day and basically did nothing. My friends were told that county officials didn’t care as long as these minority employees didn’t cause any trouble or violence.
They were too afraid to ask them to do anything so they didn’t but it helped the county comply with affirmative action quotas.
Check the part of the video where you can see the front right wheel of the bus... it's on the sidewalk!. Ergo, while the news van was undoubtedly parked in the street, the news conference most certainly wasn't set up there. My guess is that she figured out (way too late) that she needed to adjust the turn to get around the van, and ended up angling onto the sidewalk. But sheesh - that's basic driving: seeing what's in front of you.
Based on the video, the driver was correct. It looks like the live truck was parked in the area where the buses turn in to the terminal parking area and she hit it because she was unable to swing wide enough.
They moved because they were likely where they should not have been.
Please recall presstitutes are arrogant sob’s
“And her job is safe, because its virtually impossible to fire an angry black woman.”
She’ll be suspended for 6 months, with pay.
Nitwittery run amok. That’s a good union job!
Except if the judge were a wise latina.
In Philly I was sitting at a sidewalk cafe when a bus and delivery van collided, nothing REAL violent. I noticed about twelve passengers looking out the windows. By the time the cops got there there well over fifty people laying on the sidewalks, street and inside the bus.
That is not uncommon. Many times people will pile onto the bus after the accident and then start holding their neck and wailing.
If you can find any good news, it is training for mass casualty incidents, which always tend to turn into a Chinese fire drill no matter how much you train.
That blond lady with the red coat is really short.
A live truck is the news truck that TV stations take to the scene of their live remote reports. “Reporting live, from the scene, I’m So and So, Fox 5 News.” If the report is a big deal and the reporter might be there all day giving updates, or if they simply want to do a live update during the news, it’s a large van with the microwave dish on top that telescopes up to the sky. This allows the broadcast signal from the live event to be sent back to the TV station’s own dish so we have a clear transmission. Cables, camera batteries, TV monitors,microphones and many other accessories are in the truck and it enables the TV crew to broadcast and record their reports anywhere.
