2nd fight between Palm Tran driver, passenger in last two months

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Palm Tran has released video of another fight between a passenger and driver.

The video recorded in early May shows an incident on Broadway Street in West Palm Beach. A passenger appears to poke the driver in the face following an argument. Only this time the driver retaliates.

Palm Tran released a statement:

"At Palm Tran, the safety of our bus operators and passengers is our first priority.  We are disappointed an incident occurred but are grateful that no injuries were sustained.  The bus operator was able to maintain control of the situation and followed safety protocol by calling Dispatch for assistance.  Palm Tran fully cooperated with the City of West Palm Beach Police Department in their investigation."

In late April, a video was released of an incident where a passenger attacked and dragged a driver out of the vehicle. The April incident happened in Hypoluxo.

Palm Tran leaders say they have only had four similar incidents in the last year.

A spokesperson says their executive director has discussed strategies to lower that number to zero.
