Scary ride for passengers on a shuttle for The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor in Long Beach. Some jumping out the windows when the driver would not stop the shuttle and was heading to Carson instead.
The driver apparently took the detour to get around a train and was trying to find somewhere safe to stop, police said.
The driver refused to tell riders on the shuttle where he was going, not greeting people as they first boarded and later turning violent, according to Ashia Souder, the passenger who shot the video.
Passengers confronted the driver during the ordeal during the 30 minute detour. After passengers called 911, the driver was pulled over and taken into custody by law enforcement.
The passengers, who boarded the bus after being picked up from an overflow parking area, are being refunded by the Queen Mary and will receive a fast pass for the final night of “Dark Harbor” on Nov. 2, the company said.
Long Beach police said he will likely face battery charges and could facing kidnapping as well.
