MN Bus Runs Into WCCO-TV CBS Building On 4th of July

Talk about a story falling in your lap.
A Minnesota Metro Transit bus careened out of control 4th of July morning in downtown Minneapolis. The driver later died of natural causes.
Witnesses saw the bus drive up on the Nicollet mall sidewalk across from the legendary Prince hang out, the Dakota Jazz Club. Running over garbage cans, smashing into light posts…the bus scraped up against buildings and crushed the metal awning over the Mall Studio window of the WCCO-TV building, peeling the bus open like a can opener.
