Bus Crash Stories

Bus Crash Story 23

An international scandal broke loose yesterday when forty-five buses crashed within the same fifteen-minute span on the 15 freeway running past Primm, Nevada. Statisticians agreed: This spate couldn’t’ve been chance. But who could’ve engineered such a mass explosion? “I didn’t see anything strange,” box office vendor NeLa Spu said. “I saw buses traveling at their regular speed, and then I saw ‘splosions.” Investigators poured over the roadway, searching for signs of the typical induced-bus crash culprits: acid, spikes, holes. “Who’d want to kill forty-five buses anyway?” Spru wondered. A very good question. It’s highly unlikely that any one man would have friends, enemies, or acquaintances on forty-five separate buses.
