NASHUA, N.H (WHDH) - A bus slammed into numerous cars in New Hampshire on Monday when the driver suffered a medical emergency.

The bus went over a hydrant and into several cars in Nashua, New Hampshire about 11:15 a.m.

“I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, oh, goodness,’ and he hit a car,” said Lizette Markham, who rushed to help stop the bus. “I jumped out of my seat, and I put my foot on the brake, and I did not know how to turn the bus off, and I was really scared.”

Ronnie Bryant, who called 911, recalled, “(I) looked out the window, and I saw the bus up on the sidewalk. It was scary. There was a hysterical girl in the bus screaming, and nobody could get the doors open.”

No passengers were hurt. The driver has died.

In a statement, the Nashua Transit System said, “We are saddened by the loss of our driver, however, we are thankful to say that no one else was injured as a result of this incident.”
