‘That’s sickening': Bus driver speaks out after being attacked as passengers looked on

FRANKLIN SQUARE, New York (PIX11) - A Long Island bus driver spoke out Thursday at the arraignment of the woman who allegedly beat her for not stopping at an unscheduled stop.

“No one helped and no one called 911, I’m the one who called 911,” said N6X bus driver Keisha McGregor.  “That’s sickening, the public, the world is like this; nobody actually came to say ‘Stop’ or ‘Don’t do it’.”

She was referring to an ugly incident captured on cell phone video Monday afternoon, when 27-year-old Hempstead resident Ivey Dixon allegedly attacked her after the express bus didn’t make a local stop.  The video shows Dixon, police say, who was with her young child at the time, screaming at McGregor before unloading a barrage of punches while the rest of the bus passengers looked on.

When police arrested Dixon, the mother of three told them “I went too far.”  McGregor, a ten-year veteran, was treated for a concussion.

Dixon was arraigned on assault charges early Thursday and was ordered held on $15,000 bail.

    But Dearest, someone filmed it, and got her arrested! The people must have been in shock. I was talking with a passenger today, and he said he hopes they throw the book at her.

    There is a sign on all public transportation that says striking a bus driver is punishable by 7 years. There is no excuse for what she did.

    Dearest Bus Driver: Someone went to the trouble of filming the incident, and getting her arrested.

    There is no excuse for what she did. The sign is posted: striking a driver is punishable by 7 years.

    We at the bus stop agreed: they should throw the book at her.

    First things first- cut off this animals Public Assistance. Time to cut the dime when you commit a crime. Not to mention they should remove her kids as she has proven to be an unfit mother. What a low life animal.

    Yes, someone filmed it , but they didn't call 911, so was it their intent to get the attacker arrested? Probably not. Someone should have stopped it. Do you mean to tell me there wasn't a large man or woman on the bus who could have just given the nut case a big bear hug and held her until police arrived? Oh, I forgot… no one called police. Nice.
