Bus driver gets deer as surprise passenger



JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - A bus driver in western Pennsylvania had a surprise passenger Tuesday night when a deer crashed through the windshield.

The bus driver John Porter said, “Just out of the blue, something out of the corner of my eye, I saw something come through the window and a deer was there.”

Officials said the deer ran around the public bus in Johnstown for about 20 seconds before the driver opened the door and the deer got off.

“It was kicking around pretty good,” said Porter.

The bus was only carrying one passenger at the time. Porter said the woman was on the phone at the time and was a little shaken up.

“I think she was more worried about how she was going to get home,” Porter said.

Porter said his hands were cut by broken glass, but he breathed a sigh of relief when the unexpected passenger ran off.

Porter was anxious to see the video after the incident and told his supervisor that he wanted a copy before it went viral.

The bus was taken in for repairs.
