Men fighting on bus crash through windshield

Surveillance video from the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority shows the moment a man fell through a windshield during an assault

Surveillance video from the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority shows the moment a man fell through a windshield during an assault

A year ago the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority signed a contract with Kansas City police to add two full-time police officers to man buses for extra security.

A KCATA spokesperson stressed 15 million passengers ride the bus each year, and they experience approximately 15 violent incidents, many of which aren't almost extreme as the video. "I seen him pull the knife out of his pocket, I was just like I have to fight for my life", Clay told KSHB.

Clay said he was anxious about the mother and her two children across from them. The 21-year-old pushed the knife-wielding man toward the front of the bus. As the driver slams the brakes, the suspect goes right through the windshield.

He allegedly used it to stab Clay once before the driver opens the doors.

"This never happened before anytime on the bus", Clay said. As he pushes the knife-wielding man toward the front of the bus, the windshield of the vehicle shatters and the two men are seen dangling out of the bus.

We showed the video that KSHB first obtained to Kansas City Area Transportation Authority riders.

He said he doesn't regret what he did to protect himself and others onboard that bus. "If seems like it's getting out hand just back off".

Clay was taken to hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
