On Houston Street, Bus Driver’s Luck Takes a Turn for the Worse

Stephen Rex Brown

Police officers, construction workers, and The Local had their cell phones out for a photo op just minutes ago. The driver of a TNT Transportation bus taking an advertising firm on a company outing attempted to make a turn from Crosby Street onto Houston Street. Road barriers made the move tricky, so the driver improvised. A 29-year-old employee of the advertising company, who declined to give his name or the name of the firm, said, “The driver tried to take a shortcut. Because of the construction, he couldn’t make a turn and he got stuck. He looks like an idiot.” Have another look at the scene below and see if you agree.
