Terror On The Bus

Bus driver under the influence

Greyhound Bus

(WESH) – Frantic passengers aboard a South Florida bound Greyhound bus called 911 in Volusia County on Sunday saying the driver was all over the road and falling asleep at the wheel.

Richard Campbell, 59, was arrested on Interstate 95 near Mims shortly after 8 p.m. and charged with DUI.

Troopers said he was taken to the hospital rather than jail after suffering some kind of medical issue due to whatever substance he was using.

About 39 passengers were on the bus and callers said Campbell was swerving all over the road.

“The driver is reckless driving. He’s fidgeting. He’s been fidgeting for an hour-and-a-half now. He almost ran a car off the road,” one of the passengers told a 911 operator. “He keeps putting his head on the steering wheel and bringing it back up and jumping in his chair.”
