A bus driver was in a serious condition last night after he was shot by an angry passenger in Bangkok yesterday morning.
Reports said Passada Pu-ngerndao, 50, the driver of a number 1075 bus, refused to stop in front of Soi Amornpan despite a request from the passenger to do so. He allegedly said he could not stop there because it had no bus stop.
Comments by the driver are believed to have angered the passenger before he got off at a bus stop near Kasetsart University.
Later, after the bus reached its terminal at Wat Samien Naree and Passada began a new route from the temple, he was shot by the passenger when the bus arrived at a bus stop near Phong Phet market.
