Bus driver passes out on freeway

SAN DIEGO — A bus driver may have lost consciousness at the wheel when he lost control of his vehicle on a freeway in Mission Valley Sunday night, investigators said.

The bus, which was not carrying any passengers, veered off of Interstate 8 west of Interstate 805 at about 11:15 p.m. The bus went off of the right shoulder of the freeway, careened through a muddy ditch and came to a stop blocking the Texas Street offramp of the freeway.

When paramedics arrived, the driver was unconscious in the driver’s seat. They immediately began CPR, which they continued on the drive to the hospital.

The man’s condition was not immediately known.
