The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that "just after 10:30 a.m. yesterday, a man climbed aboard a crowded Metro bus heading into downtown Seattle from a stop along Aurora Avenue North at North 85th Street, near Green Lake." The man tried to use a bus pass that was expired. The driver told him it was expired. The man asked to be let off the bus immediately. The driver said he would let him off at the next stop. The passenger took exception to that. He "the man allegedly grabbed the bus' steering wheel, wrenching it away from the driver. The bus then veered up over a curb and through a tree before slamming through a utility pole. It crashed to a halt along Aurora at North 80th Street." The man then "booked" away from the bus, and was apprehended by the police.

I don't think that little adventure got him where he was going any more quickly.
