Another bus driver of La Periferica bus company, hours earlier, pulled the same stunt made by fellow driver that ended in the death of Marlon Evans last Thursday.
The two buses were caught on camera by the Municipality of San José surveillance cameras, on Paseo Colon make a left turn at the Mercedes tower.
Luis Diego Gonzalez, general manager of the bus company says he does not believe the drivers are making the illegal turn to save time, for there is no time pressure on their routes.
