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