BUS DRIVER ROLLS OVER OWN FOOT

Amherst – A Lorain County Transit bus driver was injured Monday afternoon when her own bus rolled over her foot.

Amherst Firefighters and Paramedics from LifeCare Ambulance responded to the west drive of Golden Acres on North Ridge Road in Amherst and treated the driver at the scene. The incident, which is still under investigation by the Lorain County Sheriff’s Department, caused injury to the driver’s foot and other minor injuries from being struck by the door.

As Firefighters and Paramedics began to lift the driver into the ambulance on the cot she expressed some concerns and said she was nervous – The Amherst Fire Chief comforted her by saying “With these six guys, you are as safe as being in your mothers arms” – With that reassurance she relaxed and was loaded into the ambulance and transported to Amherst Emergency Room for further treatment.

How did the van actually run over her foot? Was that the driver in the photo?
