MTA Bus Driver Passes Out in Almost the Worst Place Possible

By

A Bronx-bound express bus crashed into car after car along Madison Avenue after its driver passed out, apparently with his foot on the gas, before a passenger took the controls and brought the vehicle to a stop at 86th Street. "The bus driver is passed out, and the bus is going faster. His foot must have been pressed on the gas," one passenger told NBC New York. Five people went to the hospital, two with serious injuries. But it could have been worse, another passenger pointed out: "I thank God we were not on a bridge, or on the highway."
