KENOSHA, WI – Jill Biens played the part of hero with her quick thinking and action. While on a casino tour bus hurtling down the interstate in Kenosha, Wisconsin, she started yelling at the bus driver but quickly realized the driver wasn't there and took matters into her own hands.
“We came off the wall back into traffic and I'm wondering’ well, don't be pulling out and start driving again.,’ she explained. “Stop the bus, stop the bus, I'm yelling at him stop the bus and I realized we started going towards the wall again. I turned to yell at him like ‘what are you doing’ and I realized no one was there."
That’s when she decided yelling at the driver who had collapsed and was no longer behind the wheel was not going to help the situation.
"So that's when I realized, after we hit the wall the second time, that this bus was going by itself."
Biens slid behind the wheel and brought the bus under control, saving her life, and the lives of the 33 other passengers and the driver.
A trip to the casino that could have been a bust turned into a jackpot.
