JOHNSTOWN, PA (CNN) - A bus driver in Pennsylvania got an unexpected passenger on his route earlier this week. The scared deer actually came straight through the windshield.
A bus driver in Johnstown got an unexpected passenger on board, and as WTAJ News Reporter Danielle Krout tells us he didn't appreciate it, trying to hitch a ‘free' ride.
"Every day is an experience driving a bus." And Tuesday was no exception for Camtran driver John Porter. He had a passenger make a smashing entrance.
"Something caught my eye and next thing I knew the deer came through the bottom of the window and tried getting back out."
Porter was on Goucher Street when this deer got airborne and crashed through the front window, and it crossed the yellow line while the bus was still moving, a big no-no.
The frantic deer scrambled, trying to get out. Porter says he brought the bus to a quick stop. He then let the deer out but there was one problem, he left without paying. 'No one rides free on my bus."
One passenger was in the very back of the bus when this deer tried hitching a ride. Porter says other than the bus damage he's ok.
"I had glass in the hair that I have left and a few little cuts!" It was one ride and a passenger porter says he won't soon forget. "It was a different experience."
