I was on the bus at 8:25 and the fire department at the same time was leaving the station to get down there.

Looks like they were trying to take a shortcut to West Liberty avenue.

This report: http://www.wpxi.com/news/news/local/woman-loses-control-car-nearly-flies-over-pittsbur/nWJD5/ says the driver was driving "up a hill" prior to the crash. Not sure how this happened. At noon, WPXI reported they'd have a full story at 5 p.m.
