Bus Driver Runs Over Snowman in Champaign, Forced To Resign (VIDEO)

An unnamed bus driver in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois was forced to resign on Monday after running over a man standing in the lane of oncoming traffic.

A snow man, that is.

A YouTube video, which ABC reports was taken by students at the University of Illinois, shows the snowman blocking traffic on a quiet side street. One car stops, then slowly passes by the obstruction.

Then, along comes a bus, in the opposite direction. You can see the snow carnage for yourself.

The driver was clearly gunning for the snowman, swerving into the opposite side of the street to nail it. But in the days since his resignation, people have rallied for his reinstatement: over 4,000 people support the "Save the Bus Driver" Facebook page, which argues that he was "doing his civic duty by cleaning the obstacle."
