A tow truck rammed into the rear of a Lynx bus that was parked at a bus stop, injuring six passengers early Tuesday in Orange County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Victor Viera, 54, of Orlando was heading northbound on U.S. Highway 441 about 8:15 a.m. when he stopped the Lynx bus to pick up passengers in the right through lane bus stop near Washington Street. Tow truck driver Wilfredo Flores, 43, of Orlando didn’t notice the stopped vehicle and, as a passenger stepped onto the bus, he slammed his vehicle into the back of the bus, said FHP Sgt. Kim Montes.
