A digital sign on the back of a RideOn bus alerted the public to call 911, according to a witness– “HELP! Call 911” The distress signal, for the most part, is used when disruptive or threatening behavior occurs on the bus and the bus operator cannot visibly call for help– using the sign to signal surrounding drivers.
Upon arriving on scene, near Safeway on Darnestown Rd in Gaithersburg, Montgomery County Police officers located an adult male victim who had been assaulted. The victim, who was also the driver of the bus, was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries. No suspects are in custody at this time.
God bless all of you bus drivers. Thank you for keeping us connected, especially during covid. Praying for this driver’s recovery.
