West Bloomfield Township — Authorities have released video showing crashes that happened after police say a 65-year-old bus driver fell asleep at the wheel and hit several vehicles in suburban Detroit.

The crashes involving a Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation bus took place in October in Oakland County’s West Bloomfield Township.

Police say the driver crossed the center line and hit one vehicle before crashing into several others. The video aired by WDIV-TV shows him try to slam on the brakes and swerve, but it was too late. Two other motorists were injured.

Police say there was one passenger on the bus. The driver told investigators he fell asleep.
