Windshield falls out of Metrobus


The windshield fell out of of a Metrobus near the corner of Stanton Road and Savannah Street in Southeast Washington about 10 a.m. Monday, forcing a busload of passengers to transfer to a following bus.

Metro could not immediately explain how the windshield fell out of the bus, which was on the W3 route.

"The operator called and said it fell out" but there was no other information available from Metrobus officials on why the incident occurred, said Metro spokeswoman Angela Gates.

A mechanic was dispatched to the scene, and the passengers disembarked and transferred to another bus traveling on the same route, Gates said. There were no reports of injuries.

It was to two-headed, one-eyed, woggie-boggie that stalks the bus faciities late at night. He feeds on stupidity and windshield stripping.

At least it wasn't a passenger window that someone was leaning out of.

So that's what happens when the 3-hour transfer window expires!
