Kianee Lane and her two children had a close brush with death Saturday afternoon when her vehicle was involved in a traffic accident with a reportedly stolen Hele On Bus. The accident occurred near the Hilo Home Depot Store as Lane was turning left into the Target Store parking lot.
Lane tells reporter Tiffany DeMasters that she and her children were really shaken up:
“He got pissed and sped up,” she said. “I don’t know why he got so mad.”
“Lane said the driver of the bus swerved behind her and flipped her the middle finger.”
“Eventually, Lane said, the driver went around her and into the opposite lane to pass her vehicle. It was as he was passing that he struck her car, breaking the driver sideview mirror, she said.”
“The middle of the bus is what hit my window,” she said. “I didn’t want his back tire to hit my front tire so we swerved onto the grass. He just kept going like nothing was wrong.”
“Lane said her 5-year-old was very scared.
“I was freaking out mostly because I had my kids in the car with me,” she added.
“Since the incident was so upsetting, she had officers meet her at her home so she could file a police report. Aside from being shaken up, no one was injured.”
“The county bus system has been plagued with problems for several months. Mass Transit Administrator Tiffany Kai stepped down and Mayor Harry Kim brought in a retired U.S. Marine to whip the struggling Hele-On bus system into shape.”
