The SEPTA driver who was attacked by a group of teens Saturday afternoon was rehospitalized Sunday because he was in intense pain, according to SEPTA spokeswoman Jerri Williams.
"He's still there under pain medication for observation and tests," Williams said this afternoon.
The 45-year-old driver was punched, pulled off of his bus and then beaten by three teen boys who had been unruly passengers, according to police. The driver was treated for a broken nose and received stitches Saturday but was then released from the hospital. He returned yesterday when he began to feel a lot of pain, Williams said.
While about two-thirds of SEPTA's buses are now equipped with surveillance cameras, the Route 52 bus in question was not, Williams said.
