Singer unharmed, but her Porsche wasn't so lucky.
Whitney Houston hit a city bus with her
sports car near her home in Alpharetta, Georgia, on Wednesday and walked
The singer's Porsche, however, wasn't as lucky. The accident, which occurred
around 5 p.m. as Houston was pulling out of a shopping center, left the bus
with no noticeable nick, but damaged the bumper of her car, according to
Alpharetta Police Department Officer Tom Patton.
As Houston was backing out of the shopping center's parking lot, a city bus
was traveling down North Point Parkway, slowing down as it approached a bus
stop. Houston misjudged the clearance between her car and the bus and
clipped the bus' right fender with the right corner of her bumper.
Houston, who lives with husband Bobby Brown near the site of the accident,
was cited for failure to yield while entering a roadway, a low-level moving
violation in Georgia.
