15 lb. concrete slab thrown at transit bus windshield
“An MTA bus driver in Brooklyn says she is shocked, scared, and feels lucky to be alive after someone threw a 15-pound concrete slab at her windshield.
Lapreecia Oquendo filmed the aftermath as she waited for help to arrive to her B42 bus on Rockaway Parkway in Canarsie shortly before 2 a.m. Saturday.
The man fled the scene and has not been caught.
Oquendo was showered with glass fragments, but she and her passengers were not seriously hurt.
New York City Transit says it has forwarded dashcam video that may show the suspect to investigators.”

Bus drivers have it hard enough with the responsibility of keeping their passengers safe. This is even more true during the coronavirus pandemic where many states require facemasks be worn while on a bus. They certainly don’t need any devious persons trying to cause damage and harm intentionally. In this case, it was fortunate that no one was killed or injured.
