I just heard about a school bus driver, who made a U-turn in front of a pickup truck. The bus had 21 students aboard. Lucky for the school bus driver none of the students was hurt. The school bus driver was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor drunk driving (blood alcohol content above the legal limit) and child endangerment. It seems she was drinking the night before and the alcohol was still in her bloodstream. The school district will make a decision whether to suspend or fire her. She has been a bus driver for 16 years and has never been involved in an accident. Several parents called to say she is a good person.
Driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the most dangerous things to do, especially when children are with you. It does not matter if the school bus driver is a good person. She put the lives of 21 children on the line when she took the wheel of that bus. She is lucky that they did not get hurt or that the incident did not result in the death of any of those children. If these children were hurt, the parents should consider consulting a personal injury attorney, one that represents victims of bus accidents.
