Photos from Joe Paterno's funeral procession, which drew huge crowds in State College on Wednesday, are beginning to roll in. Mourners lined the street along the procession route, spilling over from sidewalks and into the street itself as Paterno's casket and the lengthy train of cars crept by. It was quite the sight to behold, and the pictures capture the emotion of the day, as well as the crush of people who came out for one last glimpse of Paterno.
The following photos were taken by Ben Jones, who was staked out on a roof along the route. Here's the procession parting the massive crowd as it heads down College Ave.
Notice the blue school bus, which carries players to Beaver Stadiums on game days. Also notice the crowd of people pressed up against the windows on the right side of the frame.
Pretty surreal sight and an impressive turnout for the procession in what had to be another emotional day for the Penn State community.
