Mercedes Benz W124 versus Thomas BUS
This bus pulled out from the stop sign RIGHT into my path. He was either distracted or never looked. Even though I had the right of way and he was already stopped at the end of his road (Aiken St.) he pulled out RIGHT in front of me and turned left, which made it impossible for me to avoid colliding with him. The Mercedes' over-built and amazingly strong A-pillar did a miraculous job of protecting me. As the Paramedics, Police & Fire Fighters confirmed this sort of thing almost always ends in a fatality by decapitation or such.
Naturally, we will be replacing the Mercedes with another E or S class.
