Church Going Pensioner Killed By ‘Sleepy’ Bus Driver

Sleep apnoea, when not diagnosed and treated, can cause vehicle accidents which not only cost the lives of road victims but also the freedom of affected driver. One such accident happened recently, when a church-going pensioner was killed by a bus driver who allegedly fell asleep at the wheel. The driver of the said single-decker bus crossed onto the wrong side of the road and hit a 68-year old woman from behind.

After he was arrested, the bus driver told the police of his sleeping problems, saying that on average he would sleep between two and a half and five hours a night, interrupted by four to five visits to the toilet. His sleeping problems were worsened on the night before the accident by his drinking, whereby he consumed three pints and a double brandy, causing him to be abnormally tired on the day of the accident.
