An Illinois bus driver has been forced to resign after veering into the wrong lane to mow down a snowman.

It was built by students at the University of Illinois in Urbana, who taped the incident. Supporters say the driver was just trying to eliminate a road hazard.

About a thousand people have joined a Facebook page calling for him to be reinstated.

Officials say there were better, safer ways for the driver to have removed the snowman.
