Driverless bus causes freak, 2-vehicle accident

BEAVER FALLS, Pa. — Police don’t plan to cite the drivers of a truck and school bus that crashed in western Pennsylvania.

But only because neither vehicle had a driver when they wrecked.

Police said the incident happened Tuesday when the parked bus began to roll down a hill, even though the driver had engaged the parking brake.

The bus rear-ended a parked truck, which also began rolling down the hill, until the truck overturned. The bus continued on, shearing off one utility pole and hitting another before rolling to a stop a few feet from the porch of a home.
