  • This (as well as the other incident mentioned above) could be the work of a vengeful spirit that possesses people.
    • The fact that both events took place in a public setting (a bus) would seem to indicate that the spirit feeds on the terror of the witnesses.
    • Would be an interesting wrinkle if the incidents both started at the same point on the road - perhaps the spirit responsible is the ghost of someone buried in the pier or a bridge or embankment somewhere along the road that can occasionally jump out and possess vulnerable passers-by.
    • Or perhaps the witness herself is attracting these incidents somehow. What powers are messing with her… and why her?
  • Alternatively, perhaps this is some sort of weird magical ritual.
  • In real life, a delusion related to the use of psychotropic drugs is the most likely explantion … and is likely to be the bland rationalisation of the event whatever the actual cause was.
    • A drug specifically tailored to create self-destructive hallucinations would be an interesting plot-point.
