Motorcyclist dead after slamming into car, school bus

NEW MANCHESTER, W.Va. -- A Northern Panhandle biker is dead after slamming into both a car and a school bus.

Authorities say 44-year-old Jeffrey Brennan of Newell hit a car on his side of W.Va. 8 near New Manchester, and then smashed into the bus Wednesday afternoon. No students were aboard at the time.

Hancock County Sheriff Mike White tells WTOV-TV the bus driver was unhurt.

Witnesses say a line of cars was waiting to turn, and Brennan was unable to stop. After hitting a car, he struck the bus in the opposite lane and was thrown off his bike.

The motorcycle lodged under the bus and caught fire.

Brennan wasn't wearing a helmet.
