Roddy Piper's Kid -- Bus Blasts Through Car Door

1/6/2010 2:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wrestling legend Rowdy Roddy Piper must have been thanking his lucky bagpipes last night -- because Tuesday afternoon a bus barreled through his daughter's car door ... and was this close to taking her with it.

We were there right after a bus careened into Ariel Piper's door as she was stepping out of her parked car in West Hollywood -- and though the vehicle's left side was a mangled mess, the wrestler's daughter walked away unscathed.

Piper, who claims the accident wasn't her fault, told us "It didn't hit me, just my door. Doors can be fixed." We're told the drivers exchanged information and no tickets were issued.

Daddy wants some of the pie too.    

Quit defending this retard. You look in the mirror then exit the car when safe and you can close the door without interfering with traffic. You dont stand there with your door wide open expecting people in the lane next to you to veer out of their lane to avoid your door. THEY have the right-of-way. "40 mph"? Come on--drama queen. "Poor me" should be "stupid me".

She opened her door into oncoming traffic. Glad she's okay but she's a dingbat and it was her fault.

If you open your door in front of a bus I'm pretty sure it's your fault. She didn't even have time to step out because she open the door right in front of the bus. She should just admit she was wrong and be thankful she is ok.

Bus drivers in LA can be absent minded at times, I had one pull away as I was stepping out of the bus ...I understand that becomes such a routine for them that they drive in automatic...HOWEVER..how do you not see someone standing outside of their car with the door open!!!!...and how reckless to drive close enough to a car as to blow right through the door!!! it's baffling and frustrating!...

I will say she is cute too...

and she never said it wasn't her fault nor did she say it was. Just because a bus hit her open door doesn't make it her fault. Most streets with parking should be wide enough for people to open there doors with out being hit. She isn't parked 15 ft from the curb so there shouldn't have been a issue unless the driver wasn't paying attention or the street isn't wide enough.

It could be her or he bus drivers fault.

Either way be smart lady. You have side mirrors c'mon. Stepping out of your parked car on a busy street uses the same common sense as looking both ways before you cross. As for the bus? Probably could of merged into another lane to avoid the door, but maybe couldnt because there may have been another vehicle to it's left. And ppl dont say it should of "hit the brakes". That much mass at a certain speed hitting the brakes? Do the equation. And lets not forget its wide too.

It was HER fault.

She was clearly at fault here. But liberal bloggers will say she had the right to open her door without having to worry that a bus would have been on the street. Remember as kids we were taught" look both ways before you cross the street" Well maybe when "WE" were kids. These days its always someone elses fault. Take responsibility girl damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Her name is Ariel Teal Toomb. (Do not Google Ariel Piper, you will be sorry.) She did not open door in path of bus. She had already stepped up from seat and was standing when the bus snagged car door.

She is very sweet and knew she was almost killed.
