Snow removal, Newton style

Just look at how clear this parking lot is! Newton Mayor Setti Warren posted this photo yesterday, along with this note:

Newton DPW doing a great job clearing snow out of the Richardson Street lot in Newton Corner this morning!

The Globe reports the driver of that ill-fated 57 bus told investigators she was in the middle of a bad sneezing fit when she nearly plunged the vehicle onto the turnpike, but that her story is kinda contradicted by surveillance video from the bus, which apparently shows her with her cell phone in her hand and which is one of the reasons she is now facing criminal charges in Newton District Court.

The following, from the Globe report, is the best sentence any Globe reporter will write this week:

The cause of the crash, she told investigators, was her struggle with her nose.

Bus crash in Newton Corner

State Police report the bus crashed through a guardrail and fencing over the westbound turnpike on Washington Street this morning.

There is NO threat of bus falling down onto the Mass Pike as it has been secured by Newton Fire Department.

The westbound onramp to the turnpike is shut as well as the turnpike's right lane due to debris - and the chance more might fall as the bus is removed.
