Fight be­tween man, bus driver stops traf­fic in San Gwann but only one man in­ter­venes

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

A video has emerged of a fight be­tween a man and a bus driver in San Gwann yes­ter­day.

The 35-sec­ond clip shows two men, locked to­gether, strug­gling in front of a stopped bus. The per­son who up­loaded the clip said the in­ci­dent took place at around 4pm in San Gwann.

It has since been con­firmed that one of the men is a bus driver while the big burly man was driv­ing an­other car. It is un­der­stood that the car driver got out of his car and climbed aboard the bus, drag­ging its driver out into the street.

An el­derly man tries to in­ter­vene at one point but is pushed away. A woman, be­lieved to be the big­ger man’s part­ner, is also seen try­ing to break up the fight and scream­ing can be heard.

The two men wres­tled for a few mo­ments before the car driver walked to his car and sped off.

The video had been seen more than two thou­sand times an hour af­ter it was posted online and many com­mented on the fact that, de­spite the fact that traf­fic from both sides was stopped, peo­ple pre­ferred stay­ing in their cars rather than break up the fight..

A spokesper­son for Malta Public Trans­port said the com­pany would be for­ward­ing the footage to the po­lice. She added that the driver had been taken to a health cen­tre but did not seem to have been se­ri­ously in­jured.
