“It Would’ve been Much Worse if the Bus Driver Hadn’t been So Quick-Witted”

In September 2015, a school bus broke down on a railroad track in Buxtehude on the outskirts of Hamburg, Germany. The 23-year-old female bus driver evacuated 60 school children from the bus just before a train hit the bus. A police spokesperson said, “The B37 road is currently closed due to road works. The bus needed to take a detour through town. As it was crossing the rail tracks, the joint system broke, stopping it from going further.” The police spokesperson added, “The driver had tried to get in contact with [rail operator] Deutsche Bahn. A minute later the train crashed into the bus.” The train driver tried but was unable to stop the train. The police spokesperson said, “It would’ve been much worse if the bus driver hadn’t been so quick-witted.”
