NJ Transit “Scrape & Run” on Willow
I didn’t catch this incident that supposedly took place a little over an hour ago – however, one Hoboken411 reader said this happened:
Double parker crushed; Bus left damage behind
“At about 9:52 pm, Tuesday night (06/23/09), near 708 Willow Ave, there was an extremely loud crushing noise coming from the other side of a NJ Transit bus heading southbound. When the bus slowly made it past whatever it was crushing, there was a double parked (perhaps dark green) Volkswagen Jetta (possibly from Benny Tudino’s?) with a deep gauge along the driver’s side’s left rear panel to left door to left front quarter panel with rippled denting along the same panels. The bus pulled over at Maroon coffee shop at Willow and 7th. There was significant damage to the bus’s right rear panel with a section including a tail light hanging to the side.
The bus paused for a while, then it took off without making a report with the authorities. I’m sure that when the driver returns the bus to the garage, they’re going to wonder what happened.”
