Talk about bad karma. Link.
What was the bus fleeing from? And what was it doing in a jewelry store in the first place?
The bus was probably just a regular city bus, and it just happened to make its way across the same intersection as the thief at the same time. Serves him right, although that's really sad that the guy lost his life for a few hundred bucks.
I came here to post the same thing.
I think the title (originally "Thief Hit By Bus Fleeing A NYC Jewelry Storw") needs a "while"... I'll add it now and fix the spelling...
Didn't anyone ever tell him to look both ways before crossing a street? Can't say I feel sorry for him though, after all he was stealing then fled without paying any attention to his surroundings.
You're all heart.
I read this story in the paper the other day and I just started laughing. I've seen those guys run after they steal stuff and it always amazes me how they dodge and weave but don't get hit by cars. I guess lucks runs out eventually. heh.
Damn getting hit by a NYC bus....I wonder if it was one of those extended ones with the springy midsection...that had to hurt.
In the end someone scored a chain.
Good thing he died- knowing the justice system in this country, he would have sued the bus driver for hitting him and won.
Interesting that the stores owner is well aware his "$2000" gold chain is actually only worth $200-$300 on the open market.
Well, it does say he was cycling, so he probably nearly hit someone on a pedestrian crossing, mounted the pavement for a few seconds to get round traffic, then ran a red light before the bendybus finally got him. That's if the bus driver wasn't aiming for random cyclists in the first place, like they normally do.
Throw a BMW X5 into this scene and you have all my pet road peeves.
Oh and $2000 gold chain? What was the store, Chav-Mart?
Fret not I'm sure there's a writ in there somewhere for the grieving family.
