A Parisian double-decker tour bus driver was arrested and charged with murder after having an argument with a car driver near the Louvre museum.
According to the Daily Mail, the 46-year-old bus driver was placed into provisional detention after he was charged with involuntary manslaughter. Authorities reported that the incident occurred near the Quai Voltaire, a road embankment on the opposite side of the Louvre museum.
The incident occurred after the driver of a City Sightseeing Paris Bus slammed into a 55-year-old man’s vehicle, causing an argument that went physical shortly after. A witness stated that the driver “started up the bus and crushed the car driver against another bus.” There were passengers on the double-decker when the bus driver fatally crushed the man.
