Christmas Eve bus wreck


Greyhound bus crash. Icy roads. I was released from the hospital with a tetanus shot and a bandage. The front of the bus caved in, trapping the driver. He seemed in very bad shape. I was three seats behind him. The people in the seats in front of me seemed pretty hurt, but were able to walk around afterwards.

Say a prayer for everyone travelling this week, that they will stay safe.

Still haven’t made it to my family after spending 24 hours on what should have been a 10-hour trip. With luck, I’ll be there for Christmas lunch.

The Christmas Miracle, for me, is that this delay meant I connected with a friend at the Philly bus station, and we spent the long ride across PA together.

Weary travelers. I think this is the Plainfield Rest Area on the PA Turnpike.

  1. Merry Christmas! Finally with the family. Thanks to everyone working this Christmas Day–lost travellers like me would still be lost without you.

  2. I hope you’re doing better on this Christmas night? I certainly pray for you and all those that were on the bus and hope that everyone makes a speedy recovery.

    Peace, Health and continued Blessings.

  3. I just received news of this today. Oh My ! Thank God things were not worse. Enjoy your Christmas break with your family and friends.
