Taking OC Transpo for a ride

Amazing story from Tuesday night where someone hijacked an OC Transpo bus and took it for a ride around Ottawa's east end before abandoning it. From the Ottawa Citizen:
Ottawa Police Sgt. Sal Barakat said police responded to a call for a stolen bus near Ogilvie Road and St. Laurent Boulevard at about 11:30 p.m. The bus was empty when it was taken, he said.

A short time later, Barakat said, the bus was found abandoned on the side of a road close to where it was stolen.
It would be hilarious, if it wasn't so dangerous. I'm glad I wasn't on the road when this guy was driving around.
