Missed (But Not Missed By) The Bus
2009 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin

(13 August 2009, Quebec, Canada) A 24-year-old woman was ironically successful in her attempt to catch a bus in Quebec City. Clutching a can of pop, the woman ran into a restricted area and tried to flag down 45-foot bus that had left on time--without her. As she tried her best to get herself noticed, she herself failed to notice that the bus was making a swift turn in her direction.

A veteran driver said that drivers cannot hear anything over the sound of their engines.

The woman was disappeared beneath the wheels of the turning bus. It was obvious to a former nurse, who rushed to her aid, that she was no longer able to concern herself with getting there on time. Instead of riding home in a crowded bus, the deceased woman enjoyed the luxury of a free, one-way trip "home" in a private hearse.

Considering that you have to do something really stupid to get squished by a bus in a transit center--such as sneaking into a restricted area and running under the tires--the bus company said it does not plan to increase security.
