      Don’t know. Nothing else was posted. And no reports on the news or onsite about it. I hope the little guy is doing well. I really do. :-(

    God Bless that little boy. I pray he fully recovers. SEPTA DRIVERS ARE A JOKE! I can’t tell you how many times, while driving, I was cut off or run off the road by a SEPTA bus. I have seen them run red lights, turn on red when it is clearly posted not to turn on red, speed, and drivers even talking on their cell phones. SEPTA drivers are dangerous and think the rules of the road do not apply to them. As horrible as it sounds, I hope with this accident, something is done about all the dangerous bus drivers! God Bless that little boy and his family.

      I can only agree with you. The bus driver who drive the bus on my way to work drives like a maniac. He turns the corner so sharp that people almost fall out of their seats. He totally ignore speed bumps. He hits the speed bumps so fast that no matter how hard we hold on, we still stand up from him hitting the speed bumps so hard. We’ve complained to SEPTA, but, nothing is done. And this is the only bus that gets me to work 15 minutes early, so I kind of have no choice. SEPTA needs to put passenger seat belts on their buses if they are going to have drivers like that one. Sheeeesh!!
