Texas Tech football player Austin Stewart was cruising around campus on his scooter Wednesday morning when he was hit by a campus shuttle bus. Luckily the junior safety wasn’t seriously hurt, and his injuries are being reported as minor, according to RedRaiderSports.com.
As you can see from this picture, the same can’t be said for the bus, which came out on the losing end of the collision. Apparently a 6-foot-2, 200-pound football player on a scooter is not match for a five ton bus.
Keep in mind that this wasn’t a standard size city bus, but rather one that many schools used to shuttle students back and forth across campus. That doesn’t make the fact that Stewart fared better in a collision than the shuttle bus did any less impressive.
From Dr. Saturday…
Chris Payne, Stewart’s roommate and a linebacker on the team, took a picture of the aforementioned bus and it’s very smashed windshield. Just from the photo it’s amazing Stewart, a 6-foot-2, 200 pound junior, wasn’t more seriously injured.
This wasn’t a city bus, mind you. This was a campus bus that takes students from one side of campus to the other. But it was a full-sized bus and it probably scared the heebie-jeebies out of the driver and the other students.
If you think the driver and student passengers were scared, imagine the terror the running backs of the Big 12 will feel when they look up and see Austin “The Bus Killer” Stewart bearing down on them.
