Man grabs wheel

-

An irate passenger onboard an Auckland bus grabbed the steering wheel, bringing the vehicle to a sudden stop on a busy main road. The incident is believed to have taken place on Monday, onboard a rail replacemen­t bus travelling between Pukekohe and Britomart. In video of the incident, the man, who was not wearing a mandatory face-covering, can be heard shouting at the driver, complainin­g that she missed his stop. The bus stopping sign can clearly be seen illuminate­d in the video. After yelling for the driver to stop, the man then grabs the steering wheel and yanks it to the left as the bus comes to a violent stop. A spokespers­on for Go Bus told the Herald that rail replacemen­t buses only stop at train stations and not at other stops.
