Bus Driver Claims He Fainted, Causing Bus to Hit another Vehicle in New York City

Posted on Thursday, January 31st, 2013 at 10:57 am    

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that a New York City bus driver claimed that he “blacked out” while driving, which caused him to hit another vehicle, injuring three people.

Of the 18 passengers on the bus at the time of the accident, several passengers say that they realized what was happening and tried to help. Guy Praisler, a passenger on the bus, says that he ran to the front of the bus to try to “lean [the bus driver] back and steer a bit.” Other passengers say that they did not realize what was happening; they just noticed that the bus ride became “unstable” and “jerky.”

The bus ran into a parked vehicle on Madison Avenue near 80th street. Two people were taken to the hospital but authorities say that they had non-life-threatening injuries.
