Sick, diabetic man says Greyhound bus driver left him stranded on highway - Manitoba - CBC News


Sick, diabetic man says Greyhound bus driver left him stranded on highway - Manitoba - CBC News: Barry Spence, 41, travels from his home in Thompson, Man., to Winnipeg every week for dialysis due to kidney failure from Type 2 diabetes. He started feeling sick as he was heading back home on the bus May 20.

About four hours into the 7�-hour trip, the bus pulled into the town of Grand Rapids. Spence went into a gas station washroom and threw up.

"When I came out, the bus driver tells me I can't get back in the bus. I says, 'What for?' and he says, 'You're drunk. I called the cops on you. The cops are coming,'" Spence said.

In a statement Monday, RCMP said that when they responded to the scene at 4:03 a.m., Spence appeared to be in good health. The officers told the bus driver they didn't believe he was intoxicated, Spence said.
