An investigation by the San Diego Police and the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) determined that three bus drivers acted appropriately last month after they inadvertently consumed brownies laced with marijuana before driving their routes, according to sources. Another MTS employee gave all three drivers the laced brownies before they left on their routes, and the drivers all pulled over once they noticed the effects. The drivers requested medical assistance and asked for replacement drivers to be sent out.
“I think they were responsible by pulling over once they felt dizzy and stopped the bus,” said regular bus commuter Celeste McClure.
Ron Roberts, MTS Vice Chairman, vowed to the media to get to the bottom of the incident.
“This could have been a major disaster. It’s not funny. It’s not fun and it is irresponsible at the highest level,” said Roberts. “We’re going to be very open with the public about what happened also.”
10 News in San Diego reported that the MTS employee who distributed the brownies was unaware that they contained marijuana.
The drivers should be commended for their alertness, and this investigation determined they were not at fault. Please visit our website for more information on bus accidents, and contact our firm for a free consultation if you or a loved one has been injured.
