Sleepy Bus Driver!

This is scary. Im glad the young man on the bus was alert took quick action to stop certain disaster! We here at Seattle Party Bus Rentals give Emmanuel a Thumbs Up!

TACOMA, Wash. — An alert Washington state teenager likely prevented an accident when he woke up a sleeping bus driver who had nodded off at the wheel while entering an Interstate 5 onramp in Tacoma.

A surveillance camera on the school bus recorded 17-year-old Emmanuel Williams jump from his seat and rush to the front of the bus after seeing the driver’s head go down.

Williams told KOMO News that he had noticed the driver act strangely from the moment he picked up the students at Mount Tahoma High School. Williams says the driver’s eyes kept closing and he swerved on city streets.

Tacoma Public Schools says the 65-year-old driver is an eight-year veteran with a clean driving record, but the district is investigating the mishap.

About 25 students were on the bus.
