May 15 2013
JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A deer has taken a free ride on a western Pennsylvania bus.
The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat newspaper (http://bit.ly/14nGOx0) reports the white-tailed deer crashed through the windshield of a public bus being driven Tuesday evening in Johnstown, about 65 miles east of Pittsburgh.
The deer hopped around frantically near the driver before jumping on empty seats and running in circles in the aisle.
Authorities say the driver stopped the bus and opened the door and the deer got off. Cambria County transportation spokesman Josh Yoder says it "just walked off the bus" without paying the normal fare. There were no plans by authorities to have the deer charged with theft of services.
The bus was carrying one passenger, who was seated in the back far from the deer. No injuries were reported, other than to the deer and the bus. The bus was taken to a maintenance facility for repairs.
