Be very careful with those double decker busses...

Very very sad.

It wasn't really a double decker bus, it was party bus with a deck on top of it, I think most of us have them.

I have never heard of people riding up on the deck while driving...

It sounds like the two men were on top of the bus when they went under the bridge connecting the Leid Center to the dorms on the hill.

We ride on top of a bus like that at Burning Man, but to do it on the street is just not....

i read the article and all the blog comments, and it doesn't actually say what happened. I'm guessing there was not adequate clearance between the top of the bus and the bridge?
