OJ Simpson's brother MELVIN has found himself at the centre of a San Francisco, California, tragedy after losing control of the shuttle bus he was driving and killing a passenger.

The 58-year-old fell asleep at the wheel on a routine trip to pick up passengers from San Francisco airport and crashed his bus into a guardrail, throwing one passenger to her death and injuring many others.

Passenger CHRIS LOSEE (corr) says, "It was a traumatic experience. We're blessed to be alive. The driver was in shock like everyone else. He kept saying, 'I'm so sorry.'"
