Video shows bus driver's actions prevented deadly crash

Bicyclist rode into Madison Metro Bus' path

MADISON, Wis. - A dramatic video shows what could have been a deadly crash involving a Madison metro bus and a bicyclist.

Police said Brenda Jensen's quick actions behind the wheel saved the life of a 23-year-old bicyclist.

Jensen, 49, slammed on the bus's brakes on her Regent Street route last month as the bicyclist rode right into her path.

Whitney Verdegan only suffered scrapes and bruises. She wasn't wearing a helmet and was ticketed for riding in front of the bus. Police said her mountain bike only had a bent brake.
