So it looks like W227 is done. It rolled into the back of a TPS cruiser at Kingston and Brimley. Panels toast, rear door snapped off and bumper messed up. It was stalled in front of the cop car and just started rolling.

Having spent a stint at lakeshore installing wheel trans’ INIT system, I know how the bodies are put together. Those bumpers are basically designed to break away. Doors are basic aluminum, with a tiny pivot bushing at the bottom. There are underseat heaters at the rear of the bus connected to the coolant system. What you likely saw was steam.
