I-Team Source: Witnesses Saw MBTA Bus Driver On Phone Before Mass Pike Overpass Crash
The MBTA driver that crashed into a guardrail over the Massachusetts Turnpike in Newton, has been charged with obstruction of justice.She was on the phone and rummaging through her purse while she was supposed to be driving a municipal bus. Given that we've recently seen an MBTA driver fired for texting his girlfriend when he was supposed to be driving the train, you'd think that city employees would be a bit more careful.
The driver, identified as Shanna Shaw, is expected to be arraigned in Newton District Court on May 27. MBTA Transit Police have also cited Shaw for driving to endanger, speeding and impeded operation.
But then again, being a union thug means never having to learn from past mistakes...
This one, though, is a big one. Eight people were injured. A bus was left dangling over I-90 (the Mass Pike). You want to hear the best part?
The case remains sealed and there have been no citations issued yet in the investigation.Right. Because if I had a single-car crash that left the Dodge Earthf**ker dangling over a major highway, the cops wouldn't charge me with anything, right? It's pretty amazing just how brazen this is - OBVIOUSLY the driver did something wrong. Buses don't just jump curbs on overpasses because they feel like it.
And yet this person is going to get away with gross negligence, because union - that's the Massachusetts way!
That is all.
