Bus driver nicked ‘for taking crack’ after ‘terrified’ hen do force him to pull into service station… – The Sun

Driver was snapped slumped in his seat before cops arrived after the brave women persuaded him to pull into a service station
A MINIBUS driver slumps in his seat after allegedly taking crack cocaine and terrorising a hen party.
The women called police after persuading him to pull over at a motorway service station.
The pals claim officers later told them the driver had the highest reading they had seen. The driver, who gave his name as John, picked up the ten women in Maidstone, Kent, before heading off to the hen do in Yorkshire.
But he appeared to fall asleep on the M25 before swerving across the road and narrowly avoiding a fuel tanker. One hen, Olivia, 21, said: “I thought he was drunk at first but he kept wiping his nose, sniffing and falling asleep at the wheel.
“He responded to the tanker so slowly I almost grabbed the wheel so we didn’t crash. It was so scary.”
They got him to stop at Lakeside services in Thurrock, Essex, where the group took a selfie in front of him slumped at the wheel.
Another hen Kathyrn Kent, 29, said: “After about 10 minutes we realised something was not right, he was swerving all over the road and falling asleep at the wheel.
“I was sat behind the driver and he was straying into the wrong lane.
“But what was most alarming is there was a petrol tanker coming towards us and he swerved out into its lane and we missed it by mere centimetres.
“It was absolutely terrifying.
“The fuel tanker nearly went into another car trying to avoid us, we became even more concerned at that point because we could have been killed.”
The women got taxis home and then drove to Bedale, North Yorks, where bride-to-be Sian Williams was “in tears” waiting for them.
They say they are still waiting for a refund from the minibus hire firm.
Essex Police said: “We arrested a 51-year-old man from Welwyn Garden City on suspicion of drug driving. He was released pending further investigation.”
