Thirty-eight people were killed in northern Haiti on Sunday after a bus fleeing a hit-and-run accident plowed into dozens of nearby street musicians.
A further 13 pedestrians were injured as the coach sped away from the scene of the initial accident, in which the vehicle hit two pedestrians, killing one, AFP reports.
So the bus--which was loaded with passengers--apparently first hit two people. This apparently took place at like 3 am. The driver, in trying to flee the scene, ran into a parade/street festival of sorts, killing 36 more, then ran away on foot.
I can understand the panic if you accidently hit someone while driving. I don't get how they could then plow into 36 other people. My first instinct would be hit the brakes.
But I also don't get attacking the bus. I get being angry at the driver, but it was a freaking bus. Did they really think the people inside the bus were standing there, cheering him on, yelling, "Ooh, you missed one! Hard right, get the one in the beanie cap!"
