Unusual: a driver abandoned a bus in the middle of a Córdoba route with 18 passengers inside


Many were sleeping when the bus punctured a tire and had to make a transfer. They were never notified and were adrift for six hours.


This is how a group of

18 passengers remained -including a baby-

who was traveling by bus from

Córdoba Capital to Isla Verde

, a small city in the Marcos Juárez department, in the southeast of the province.

From one moment to the next, they woke up during the trip and found themselves

abandoned on the side of the road

without the driver.

Bus 4347 of the local company


left at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The arrival time was scheduled for 2:30 in the morning on Monday.

But on the journey of just over 300 kilometers, several passengers were the protagonists of an event as unexpected as it was unusual.

They were sleeping when, around 1 o'clock, they noticed that the bus had stopped on the side of

Provincial Route 4


Not receiving any alert notification from the staff, they remained rested.

However, some opened their eyes again when the clock already marked 2.30.

They were in the same place.

Astonished, some approached the front of the bus and found that

they were locked in. 

The lights off and the absence of the driver were other warning signs.

Passengers who had gone out with them were also missing.

Despair invaded the scene. 

At that time, some used their cell phones and opened map applications to find out where they were stranded.

The location was 


, about 100 kilometers from the destination. 

The car key still in place allowed them to try their luck to open the doors and get out.

"We touched all the buttons, without any knowledge, and

we were able to open the doors

. When we went down, we opened the hold and noticed the

absence of the bags

," explained Antonela Cesano, one of the passengers who recounted the odyssey on her Twitter account.

They thought it was a robbery.

So, they called the police.

But they received a disconcerting answer.

The troops told them that, in that same place, they had transferred a bus 45 minutes ago because

it had punctured a tire


Precisely, the affected micro was his.

They never found out.

The agents also confirmed that the bags were transferred.

That's why they found the warehouse completely empty.

"Surely the driver asked us to get off to make the transfer because otherwise the rest of the people would not have gotten off and continued their journey. But another 18 of us were sleeping and we didn't hear anything. He never got on the bus to check that all the passengers had gotten off. He


on another, loaded the bags and continued on his way," questioned Antonela.

Some passengers spotted a bus from the same company traveling in the opposite direction and signaled to it to stop.

When braking, the driver and his companion could not believe what had happened.

One of them sympathized.

He continued his trip to Villa María to look for another bus, turned around to look for them and leave them at their destination.

The dramatic story ended at 8:40, six hours after the stipulated time.

"What happened is very serious. We know that the driver's name is Sergio. We tried to make the claim and they transferred the call from one number to another. This cannot happen again. Thousands of things happened to us in those six hours The risks we ran were many and we were with a baby," concluded Agustina, outraged by the situation they had to live and the lack of response from the company.
