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

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.

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.

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.

He should be convicted of attempted murder of 40 passengers, and given a life sentence without parole.

I agree! If I were on that bus and almost got killed because of that idiot; I'd make sure to give him a military style blanket party. Let everyone whoop the snot of them and teach them a lesson they will never forget. I am sick and tired of all these idiots doing things like this. There are no deterrants anymore .
