School Bus Driver Removes Dangling Power Line, Traffic Cones and Caution Tape From His Way
A school bus driver was filmed dragging a dangling power line from under his bus before removing a barricade of traffic cones and caution tape in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey, on March 8, as snowstorms left thousands without power in the area.
In this footage, filmed by Renee Wilson from her bedroom window, passengers can be seen in the bus windows.
The recorder told Storyful that the entire street had been cordoned off after a nor’easter storm hit the area, downing a power line.
The bus driver had run into the caution tape and gotten stuck.
He had attempted to back up, Wilson said, however the roads were too icy and the bus’ “wheels were spinning.” Wilson began recording shortly afterwards.
Another New Jersey man was reported to have been killed that morning when drove into fallen power lines in Bergen County, setting his car on fire.
The bus was leased out by Holcomb Bus Service, and the driver was not one of their employees, a company official was quoted as saying by 6abc Action News.
