mazeHAUSER, Idaho – A bus carrying paintball players struck and killed a Washington state man inside a zombie attraction at a corn maze in northern Idaho, authorities said Saturday.

Jeremy T. McSpadden Jr., 18, of Spokane Valley, Washington, was a role player in the “Zombie Slayer Paintball Bus” attraction at the Incredible Corn Maze in Hauser on Friday night, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said.

The attraction is new this season, according to the corn maze’s website. For $15, customers ride the bus and shoot paintballs at the zombies as the vehicle drives through the corn maze.

It’s not clear why the bus hit McSpadden. He died at the scene.  More

LOS ANGELES, California – For 10 agonizing minutes,  an 18-year-old mentally disabled woman was raped in the back of a near-empty Los Angeles County bus as it rolled past a state park and a cemetery and no one did  anything about it.

Several passengers and the driver were apparently unaware that a crime was  being committed in the 45-foot-long bus, but one person on board tried to alert the driver and was unsuccessful.

Authorities arrested Kerry Trotter, 20, thanks to an anonymous tip  by someone who saw an image of the suspected attacker taken by a surveillance  camera on the bus that was publicly released.

Trotter was booked for investigation of rape and was being held on $1 million  bail.  Full Article

george-dawNutty News West Babylon, New York – A Long Island school bus driver was called into his boss’ office expecting commendation. Instead, he said he was fired for helping three police officers stranded in a violent storm – and transporting them in his school bus. Daw snapped pictures as a near-monsoon moved through New Hyde Park. Traffic was stopped, cars were submerged and drivers panicked. George Daw finally freed his yellow SUV school bus – with his one single child passenger aboard – amid sudden cries for help from three Nassau County police detectives. “Do I leave these three police officers, due to company policy?” Daw said. “I didn’t even second guess it. I told the child to jump in the back, these people are coming on board. I had to get them.” Daw rescued and transported the police officers – their unmarked patrol car was a total loss.  More

nj-transit-busNutty News New York – Officials are trying to determine why an NJ Transit bus with a dead driver inside idled for nearly five hours at the Port Authority terminal in New York. Thomas Truex was found slumped in a passenger seat around 3 p.m., hours after he dropped off his last commuters. When Truex didn’t return the bus to the Meadowlands garage as planned, NJ Transit officials called his wife, but she hadn’t seen him. At about the same time, the bus was spotted at the Port Authority, parked near a curb where drivers routinely stop for a bathroom or coffee break.  More

bus-stopNutty News Honolulu, Hawaii – A city bus stop has been temporarily moved so bus drivers and riders can get away from the smell of a homeless woman who’s living at a busy Honolulu bus shelter. That’s the first time the city has relocated a bus stop because of a homeless person. The concrete bus shelter on Kapiolani Boulevard, right across from the Nordstrom store at Ala Moana, has been home to an elderly homeless woman for at least the last year. Bus drivers said that the woman is sometimes so smelly that her odor wafts in buses when they open their doors outside the bus shelter and the smell lingers for a while inside the bus. So the city temporarily moved the bus stop 60 feet down the street. The city has begun installing a new style of benches at bus stops with designs that are supposed to discourage people from sleeping on them.  More   Nutty News Today   Nutty News for iPhone   Nutty News for Android Phones   Nutty Videos   Nutty News Facebook Fan Page   Nutty News on Twitter   Nutty Videos on Twitter   Register A Website Address – Choose A Hosting Package – Easy Do-It-Yourself Websites - HostWink.com  Nutty News Marketplace

tunnel-busChina – Chinese designers have come up with an innovative cost-effective public transport system: the tunnel bus. The remarkable bus straddles two lanes of traffic, allowing cars to drive underneath while it carries up to 1,200 passengers. It’s environmentally sound too because it runs on electricity, using a state-of-the-art charging system. Called relay charging, the roof of the bus conducts electricity and contacts special charging posts as it moves along.  More…
