FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - A teenager headed to a Sweet 16 party was killed after he stuck his head out of the emergency hatch of a double-decker bus and hit the underside of a highway overpass, police said.OUCH. What a way to go. No doubt this was an awful terrible moment for everyone. The company that owns the bus will be conducting an internal investigation.
FOR WHAT??? This accident was not due to bus being unsafe. It was not due to malfunction of anything.
It was the dumbness of the 16 year old kid.
As harsh as that sounds, when it gets right down to it, that's all there is to it. I'm willing to bet some cash the boy's family will file a lawsuit against the bus company, the driver of the bus and any adults who were present (if any). Because in this day and age, every tragedy, every accident is someone elses fault.
