CT Transit 3073820 viewsOn April 20, 1987, CT Transit New Haven division bus #3073 was operating the 4:30pm trip from Waterbury to New Haven on what was then known as the "U" route. Near the Waterbury - Cheshire town line, a box truck headed in the opposite direction crossed the center line of the road and sideswiped the bus, causing extensive damage and injuring 10 people.

NOPSI 282497 viewsThursday, February 12, 1970---a tragic, traumatic night during Carnivaltime '70 as 24 year-old NOPSI operator Joseph Washington, working on the Tchoupitoulas line that evening, ignobly became the victim of his own bus! While traveling outbound, Washington was ejected from NOPSI 282 in a collison with an automobile @ Jackson and Annunciation, thrown under a back wheel, and dragged to his death and crushed as his driverless bus careened forward, bounced over the Jackson Avenue neutral ground and slammed into a building across the street.

2 of his passengers survived, however, albeit one with slight injuries. Not exactly the WORST way to go, but horrible nonetheless!
