Ya, that comment shows what little brain capacity you have. The driver HAD a medical problem. Nowhere in the article does it state if this was a standing or known medical problem. It could have been something new. Instead of looking like a complete fool, READ the article first.

How about being a vehicle driver on the roads and knowing that there are many drivers with known medical conditions... really, use the brain capacity you were given... not one of us knows when or where something like that could happen. Based on your statement, no one should be driving.

It could be narcalepsy hope I spelled that right? Probably not though if she has a liscence and can drive.It could have been a drop in blood pressure which happens sometimes causing you to faint. Hope she is ok?

It's lucky no one was hurt.

Bus drivers must hold a class B licence, which requires you to pass a medical by a doctor every 5 years.

It isn't her fault she lost conciousness... It could happen to a perfectly healthy person at any time.

must be christmas time ,everyone today happens to be forgiving,just think if there was a group of school kids there ,I`m just saying

It is a miracle that nobody was injured.

Guestwho: It isn't because it is Christmas that people are so forgiving, it is because this could happen to anyone of us (that includes you), you can't predict when you are going to have a medical emergency.
