I was thinking the same. Did the truck try and cut in front of the bus but misjudged it and the bus caught his rear side and spun him round? Just my thoughts.

That's just some snow that must've fallen off the bed of the truck, cuz there was no snow on the highway there!

He must've just merged from westside rd and just cut right across and hit the bus... only thing that makes sense... what a MORON!

Is it illegal to have no mudguard in BC?

I hate'em jacked up pickup trucks throwing rocks at my windshield when they drive in front of me... Especially when the roads are wet or when they drive on the shoulder because they're busy picking at their nose and can't keep going straight.

Let's not mention when they pass you on the highway and there's slush on the road. All the sheit gets sheit on the windshield like if god had a bad diarreah and blinds the view until they're far enough so it doesn't get on you anymore but on the one in front of you.

I've seen some pretty aggressive bus drivers, are people just assuming that because its an older 2 door ford that has a small lift that its automatically his or her fault?

How the heck could the bus possibly be at fault here? In the far left lane. Think about it.

Not accusing anyone here.. other than throwing rocks at windshields cuz they have no mudguards.

Here's another picture:

Yeah who knows and it looks so minor who really cares either. The mud flaps or lack of is annoying when some of the cooler ones punch it from lane to lane spraying rocks in every which direction and they should have them but they don't look cool riveted on and they block the whole look of the big nobby tires that roll on pavement 99 percent of the time!

I believe that "snow" is absorbing material to soak up vehicle fluids.

Think about the picture being the end of the incident, not the start. You can't tell from that pic what happened or how the vehicles got to where they are.

I'll chime in here as my first thought...right or wrong was..

"Just another moron in a lifted POS with no mudflaps driving like they are
unaccountable to anyone!"

Stereotypical ?? Yes, but, that was my 1st thought..
As I did not witness it I can't say for sure but,
I'd put my money on not making sure it was safe to change lanes and trying it anyways...FAIL111
or.

Standing on the throttle, as these people that drive these things so often do, and loseing traction and control
across the front of the bus...again...FAIL.



FLAME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!! :sillygrin:
