    A city bus driver in Champaign-Urbana has quit over a hit and run... of a snowman.

    The resignation followed a meeting with officials of the transit company, who saw a video posted of the driver recklessly plowing over the snow creation on the University of Illinois campus.

    The video was posted on YouTube after a snowstorm earlier this month.

    It shows one vehicle swerve around Frosty followed by the bus's accurate hit.

    Jan Kijowski, a spokeswoman for Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District, acknowledged that the driver has resigned.

    She refuses to identify the driver or discuss any other details regarding the resignation.
