DAYTON, Ohio -- Video taken from the camera aboard a Regional Transit Bus shows the coach slamming into the rear of a parked vehicle in the 700 block of Troy Street at about 12:30 a.m. Monday.

WCPO news partner WHIO reports the coach continued on, forcing the first vehicle on top of the next vehicle parked in front of it and damaging at least one more parked car. The driver of the bus was on the phone, a caller told a 911 operator. 

"A bus hit my car and another car," she said. "Please be quick." 

The woman told the operator that no one was in her car or the second car that was hit. 

"He hit very bad," she said of the RTA bus. "Please be quick." 

Jessica Olson, a spokeswoman with RTA, said any information beyond the video of the crash would have to be obtained from Dayton police.
