Richard Gubish is our hero

Two weeks ago, a car rear-ended a bicyclist in Bethlehem, PA.  And then attempted to speed off without stopping to help the bicyclist.

Unfortunately for the hit-and-run motorist, though, Richard Gubish, Jr, a quick-thinking bus driver with the Lehigh and Northampton Transit Authority (LANTA), was right ahead of the bicyclist and maneuvering his LANTA bus blocking the hit-and-runners’ attempted escape.

Oh, and did we mention that it was all caught on videotape?

As someone who’s been rear-ended by a motorist while on my bicycle and, as a guy who doesn’t hesitate to give bus drivers their due, kudos, Richard.
