Alert Bus Driver Saves Passengers

Download PDF for this date

An alert Egged bus driver was credited today with preventing possible loss of life or injuries to his passengers. The driver, who spotted a suspicious looking package in his vehicle, ordered all of his passengers off. He drove to the Egged garage and was on the way to telephone the police when a bomb contained in the package exploded. No injuries were reported and damage to the bus was minor.
