Allegheny County dispatchers said firefighters and medics were called to the 1500 block of Homestead Duquesne Road at 3:25 p.m.

Video obtained by Channel 11 shows the school bus barreling down the road, smashing into a parked car and plowing into the front of the home.

Thamer Collins lives two doors down from where the bus crashed.

His car was the first of several hit by the bus before it came to a stop partially inside the house.

“It was amazing. It was like Fast and Furious,” Collins said. “I heard the impact, looked outside, the van was sideways and the bus was in the house.”

The superintendent of the West Mifflin Area School District said no students were on the bus when it crashed. The driver of the bus had just finished a run from the district’s middle school.

The driver is expected to be OK.

“She jumped out of the back of the bus. She was dazed, a little confused, but it didn’t look like she was severely injured,” Collins said.

11 News was told there is severe structural damage to the home.
