Homer: There is something going on on the corner of Clark and Hicks. . . . I don’t know what, but lots of firemen mulling about . . .
BHB Newshound/Superphotographer Marc Hermann has the answer:
This was a charter bus that ended up getting its rear tire stuck in a ConEd vault. There was apparently a slight violent reaction on the part of the manhole upon impact. FDNY utilized Rescue Co. 2 to lift the bus out of its predicament, and turned the scene over to ConEd crews who were working in the vicinity.
