EXCLUSIVE: Hero bus driver speaks on the mystery Putney pusher
If she would have died I would have lived with this weight on my shoulders for the rest of my life
– Olivier Salbris
This morning we spoke exclusively to bus driver Olivier Salbris, who amazingly saved the life of a pedestrian pushed into the path of his bus by a jogger.
The unknown woman escaped with minor injuries after a male runner knocked her into the road as she walked over Putney Bridge and quick-thinking Olivier swerved the bus at the very last second, narrowly missed her. He said: “It just happened so quickly, I’m just glad I was able to react in time, because who knows if I didn’t.”
Olivier expressed his relief that the woman survived the shocking incident and his desire for the police to catch the perpetrator.
Police are still searching for the mystery man and anyone with information should call the police on 020 8785 8874 or 101, tweet @MetCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or crimestoppers-uk.org.
