Greyhound bus crashes, three injured
A Grehound bus travelling from Los Angeles to Phoenix crashed after a passenger attacked the driver and reportedly attempted to roll the bus. The Greyhound bus crash occurred at 2 a.m. in Tonopah at the Burnt Well Rest Area, which is at about 490th Avenue.
The Greyhound bus driver was able to keep control of the steering wheel during the attack as the bus crossed through the median heading towards oncoming traffic. The Greyhound bus driver was able to keep the vehicle upright and stop the vehicle just feet from oncoming traffic.
Video from the scene reportedly shows the suspect in police custody, still screaming, “They’re going to kill me. Call my mom!”
The suspect’s girlfriend stated that he was “paranoid” and “did not want to be on the bus.”
Some passengers describe the experience as frightening. One reportedly stated, “He started crying and I knew something was wrong.” According to another, it was thought that the Greyhound bus was merely off-roading.
A total of 26 passengers were taken to the hospital, three were air-lifted. The remaining passengers were taken by bus to the Greyhound bus station in Phoenix.
