NY bus driver saves lives

Between allegations of physical battery of an anti-crime mascot, abuse of vulnerable adults and deception used by a teen to get behind the wheel, in the DC area, it's sometimes easy to forget that those who drive the buses, vans and trains of mass transit play an important role in our communities, and many of them will go out of their way to help. In Buffalo, New York, a bus driver is being credited for saving 10 people asleep inside a burning home by pounding on the door. After his heroics, Richard Lucas got back behind the wheel and finished his route.
