Clown Clings To Back Of DDOT Bus In Detroit [VIDEO]

DETROIT (WWJ) - A video a clown hitching a right on the back of a Detroit Department of Transportation bus is going viral.

The video was taken Saturday by someone riding alongside the bus. It shows a daredevil clown in a white hospital gown and menacing mask with bright pink hair clinging onto the back of the bus.

"This n**** hanging on the back of the bus," a man says as the vehicles speeds up to the bus. "It's a f****** clown! Get the f*** out of here!"

It's not clear where the video was taken, but the bus goes over train tracks as the clown holds on for dear life. It's been viewed more than a million times.

The clown's identity is still a mystery at this point, but DDOT isn't amused by the stunt. In a statement, DDOT says it has surveillance cameras both inside and outside its buses -- and they've forwarded the footage to police for review. Officials say the safety of all riders, even clowns, is their number one priority.

An investigation is ongoing.
