Ordinarily, Michelle Kennedy wakes up at 4:30 a.m. to catch the Maryland Transit Administration bus to her housekeeping job. But Tuesday morning she overslept, and so took a different route: the No. 10 line through Southwest Baltimore.
She took her seat on the bus moments before a careening school bus slammed into it.
The 32-year-old Westport woman lost consciousness. When she came to, she said, there was glass in her mouth, pain down her right side and two bodies lying on top of her.
“I kept yelling for help, for them to get me out,” Kennedy said Wednesday. “I was scared.”
