Bus-ted on tattoo Tuesday?

November 12, 2019

In the early hours of October 28, commuters witnessed an unusual sight as the rear of a Pittsburgh city bus vanished into a giant sinkhole.  There was one passenger on the bus, but no injuries.

It turns out there had been a water main leak under the street that washed out the area under the pavement.  The bus was just at the wrong place when the asphalt gave way underneath it.

The incident has led to a number of Pittsburgh wags creating bus sinkhole doughnuts, sinkhole Christmas ornaments, a bus sinkhole Halloween costume and, of course, a tattoo.

A crane was summoned and street repairs are underway.
