Police: Bus goes off I-10 when man attacks driver

Greyhound
TONOPAH, Ariz. (AP) - State police say a passenger attacked the driver of a Greyhound bus, leading to a crash on Interstate 10 in western Arizona that left numerous people injured.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says the Dallas-bound bus was heading east from Los Angeles when the accident occurred near Tonopah (TONE'-ah-pah) shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday.

The DPS says the bus crossed the highway median, but came to a stop before entering westbound traffic when other passengers restrained the man who had been pummeling the driver.

DPS spokesman Bart Graves says 25-year-old Maquel Donyel Morris of Los Angeles has been arrested and will be booked into jail on suspicion of numerous counts of endangerment, assault and aggravated assault.

Twenty-three people are injured, including three airlifted to hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.

Drivers need sensitivity training... On the other side of coin, there are individuals that try to live on the Greyhound Buses, and they began to think they are at home sweet home.

So somehow it's the driver's fault? I think not. What an attacking society we live in that enables people to be rude anytime, anywhere, and then if that doesn't do enough damage, violent.

It looks like Greyhound will have to bring back the "Shotgun" rider. That is, "if" they want people to feel safe riding their coach.

I can definitely tell you that it did indeed take place in Maricopa County....so it looks like he's Sheriff Joe's to take care of.....or that "he's done" if you will. "Pretty in Pink" will have a whole new meaning to this psycho.

The guy sounds like a real whack job! Shhheeeeezzzzzzzzz!!

One question about the last sentence in the above story....if these three people had non-life threatening injuries, why were they air lifted? I ask this only because they are going to have a heart attack when they see their bill for that chopper ride!!

Probably they did not know the injuries were non-life threatening until a medical person[s] could determine that.
