PARTY BUS CRASHES INTO RETIREMENT HOME
Montreal's infamous Dubstep Party Bus has met an untimely end after it's driver, Louis Deserres, accidently drove the bus into a retirement home over the weekend. "I was sitting on the couch watching Matlock when I heard this loud boom," says retiree Annie Louis, "I turn around, and the wall was gone. Suddenly, there was a yellow school bus in the middle of the retirement home's common area. It caused a huge stir, I'll tell you that."
Gerard Duprix said it was the most excitement the retirement home had seen in years. "Oh, everyone who could get up, got up to see what all the fuss was about. The poor young man, that driver Louis, he was bleeding all over his head. We pulled him out of the vehicle, he was a little out of it. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt -- Louis didn't hit any of us at the home, and none of the kids on the bus were injured either."
Louis, who has owned and operated the Dubstep Party Bus for the last ten years, was driving his passengers to a Caban a Sucre when he lost control of the vehicle.
Debby Seneca was at the front of the bus when the accident happened. "We were all dancing and partying and getting our groove on to some dubstep when Louis just lost control of the wheel. I think he might have hit an animal or something. I'm not sure. The next thing we know, we're inside a retirement home. We definitely weren't going to keep our appointment with the cabane a sucre, not after that."
The ravers made the best of a poor situation. DJ Grotto was also on the bus when the accident happened. "The bus was totalled, but the sound system that Louis had installed wasn't. We decided to continue the party while we waited for the paramedics to show up."
The passengers of the party bus spent the next two hours helping clean up some of the debris and socializing with the elderly tenants of the retirement community. "Dubstep isn't my cup of tea," says Gerard. "But it was fun dancing with some teenagers. I hope they visit us again -- but next time, they should just come through the front door."
