URBANA — A Champaign-Urbana bus driver has resigned after officials with the transit agency saw an online video of the driver running over a snowman built in the middle of a street.

The video is posted on YouTube. It shows the bus veering toward the snowman on the University of Illinois campus and running over it.

The video was posted after a snowstorm earlier this month.

Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District spokeswoman Jan Kijowski said the driver resigned. She refused to identify the driver or discuss the resignation. AP
