MTA Bus Driver Busted For Being Drunk

This week’s winner of the “I Fucked Up Big Time” Award goes to 40 year old Derrick Sanchez, a MTA Bus driver who was busted for being drunk and sitting in his wrecked car. Adam Shrier of the New York Daily News has more:

Cops caught a drunken off-duty MTA bus driver idling behind the wheel of his wrecked car outside a Bronx mall late Saturday.

Mall-goers outside the Pelham Manor Shopping Plaza called police after seeing Derrick Sanchez, 40, sitting in the damaged 2013 BMW around 11:20 p.m., according to authorities.

Police suspect Sanchez crashed his car shortly before he was found.

Medics rushed him to Jacobi Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries and tested positive for driving while impaired, officials said.

I find it hard to believe he will be able to keep his job after this. While people do make mistakes as no one is perfect, it is hard to just sweep it under the rug that of all things, a bus driver was arrested for drunk driving.
