Driverless Bus Collides With Driverless Truck

BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (October 25, 2012)--Police don't plan to cite the drivers of a truck and school bus which crashed in western Pennsylvania, but only because neither vehicle had a driver at the time.

Police in Patterson Township, Pa., told the Beaver County Times the incident happened just before 10 a.m. Tuesday when the parked bus began to roll down a hill.

Police aren't sure why that happened, because the driver had engaged the parking brake.

The bus rear-ended a parked truck, which also began rolling down the hill alongside the bus, until the truck flipped onto its side.

The bus continued on, shearing off one utility pole and hitting another before finally rolling to a stop a few feet from the porch of a home.

Nobody was hurt.
