Peter Pan Bus driver accused of locking passenger in luggage compartment.
The Peter Pan bus driver was arrested after police said she locked a passenger inside of the luggage compartment of a bus heading to Boston.
Connecticut State Police said they received a 911 call from a woman around 4 PM on Sunday who said she was locked in the luggage compartment of a Peter Pan bus.
Understandable incredulity notwithstanding, state troopers found the bus and pulled it over. The woman was then found unhurt in the baggage compartment.
She told police that “she had been purposely locked inside by a female bus driver while attempting to retrieve items from her bag.”
Reports notwithstanding and while in no way justifying the driver’s alleged actions, anyone who has ridden a long haul bus can fathom why the driver did what she is alleged to have done.
