It had only been seven days since he got released from prison, but Aaron Tucker had already done the impossible — he landed a job interview.
Last Thursday, the 32-year-old from Bridgeport, Connecticut, woke up at 5 a.m., grabbed a dress shirt he had been given at the halfway house he was living in, and hopped onto a city bus to meet the manager at a nearby Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.
He was starting to drift off to sleep, then awoke and looked up to check the stop. He was startled to see a car hit a tree and flip over.
The bus driver quickly hit the brakes and came to a stop.
"Are you going to help?" he shouted to the bus driver.
"No, but if you get out I'm going to leave," the driver replied, explaining that he had to stick to his route.
