Woman left vomiting after car filled with diesel fumes

Care worker Amarjeet Kaur, 40, was hit by severe vomiting after following a bus billowing diesel fumes

A woman driver was hit by severe vomiting after following a bus billowing diesel fumes.

Care worker Amarjeet Kaur, 40, filmed the clouds of smoke coming from the exhaust of the bus, on a mobile phone mounted on her dashboard.

She followed the bus, unable to get past, for about 15 minutes and made several attempts to flag down the driver without success.

She can be heard coughing as the fumes got into her car through air vents and exclaiming ‘Oh God, oh God,’ as the situation worsened in Stourbridge, West Midlands.

Amarjeet, from Tipton, Birmingham, said yesterday: ‘I could hardly see anything and I started coughing badly. I tried to alert the bus driver when he stopped at a bus stop but the smoke was so bad I couldn’t even see people getting off the bus.

‘Eventually the bus stopped near where I was parking for work and I told the bus driver about what happened but he just looked at me and said: ‘Whatever.’

‘About an hour after I got out of the car I started vomiting and eventually had to go to see my doctor. The vomiting has stopped but I’ve still got a bad sore throat.’

She told MailOnline: ‘I was sick three times after I arrived at work and my throat is still sore now.

‘I was so worried the driver might hurt someone or cause a crash. All I could think was something bad was going to happen.

‘I was worried about the passengers on the bus, the smoke that was coming from the exhaust was harmful. You can hear me coughing in the video.

‘I couldn’t see anything, it was so dangerous.

She said her message to the driver and the coach company would be to take action. 

She said: ‘His driving was irresponsible. When I stopped him and told him he just said, I know, whatever and ignored me.

‘I couldn’t see a thing, it was so dangerous and irresponsible I just want them to do something about it.’

The incident happened on Tuesday this week on Stourbridge High Street, West Midlands. Amarjeet said the bus belonged to the Diamond Bus Company.

She has also reported the incident to police who took details from her.

Diamond Buses has been contacted for comment.
