    This is a case where a picture is worth a thousand words. Obvious who is on the wrong side of the road, and the angle showed the car had been even farther to the left when they hit.

    The picture tells it all. Bus is on the right side of the road. I wonder how the driver of the car will attempt to explain how it happened.

    Happened down the street from me. Bus had long skid marks. How much you want to bet someone was texting/networking on the phone instead of driving.
