2 MTA bus drivers involved in clashes with passengers in Brooklyn
Two MTA bus drivers were involved in separate incidents with passengers Monday in Brooklyn within minutes of each other, the MTA said.
A passenger exiting a B68 bus stuck the driver, reportedly identified as 30-year-old Mark Salandy, in the arm with a syringe-like instrument about 11 a.m. near Greenwood Avenue and Prospect Park South, the MTA and NYPD said.
Minutes later, a passenger on a B45 bus shoved its driver into a partition near Utica Avenue and St. John's Place as the driver was assisting a passenger in a wheelchair, the MTA said.
These are the second and third clashes with bus drivers in a week.
