After a video surfaced on social media of an altercation between a driver and a passenger, SEPTA has suspended the driver in question, reported NBC10.
In the video, a male driver is seen approaching and throwing water on a female passenger, explained 6ABC. The incident occurred in Olney on the transit authority's 57 bus around Rising Sun and Duncannon avenues on Friday.
One of the most popular bus routes, the 57 takes passengers to the Whitman Plaza shopping center in South Philadelphia all the way to Fern Rock Transportation Center in North Philadelphia.
The video has been watched over 100,000 on Facebook and Instagram.
The Inquirer reported that, following a preliminary investigation into the "dousing, hitting incident," SEPTA has suspended the driver in the video "without pay."
Speaking with NBC10, SEPTA Transit Police Chief Thomas Nestel said authorities believe the conflict started with a fare evasion and escalated from there.
Nestel added that cops are hoping to talk to the woman in the video.
