San Diego Bus Drivers May Have Fallen Ill From Eating Drug-Laced Goodies

Four San Diego County bus drivers may have fallen ill from eating drug-laced goodies provided by a fellow worker.

KGTV-TV reports the Metropolitan Transportation System drivers complained of dizziness while driving on Sunday. They had to pull over and were replaced.

The TV station says MTS head Paul Jablonski sent a memo to transit board members Wednesday indicating the illness was caused by baked goods provided by a fellow worker.


The memo doesn’t say what might have been in the goodies but it does say the bus drivers were on leave pending drug testing.

KPBS has created a public safety coverage policy to guide decisions on what stories we prioritize, as well as whose narratives we need to include to tell complete stories that best serve our audiences. This policy was shaped through months of training with the Poynter Institute and feedback from the community. You can read the full policy here.
