Keeping Kids Safe on the School Bus
School buses are getting a lot of attention lately because of a string of accidents. In the past month there have been accidents in cities across the nation.. In addition to these accidents there were many other minor ones.
One of those accidents happened this week in Waterloo. The school bus was taking a load of students to Central Middle School Tuesday morning when it had to stop quickly for a snow plow and then got rear-ended by a small pick-up.
Tuesday's bus accident is described as minor by police and the school, but one parent we talked to claims the school didn't take appropriate action soon enough. At the time of the accident, only one student complained of pain, he was cleared by the school nurse.
But Jacquet Wilder's daughter was sore later that night.
"I said what's rang and she said I got into a bus accident today. And I got hysterical and I said are you okay. And I can't believe I didn't get any contact and I immediately checked my cell phone and my house phone to see if I had any messages I missed," said Wilder.
Doctors diagnosed 12-year-old Brooklyn Lee with a strained muscle in her back and neck area. She's been out of school since Wednesday and starts physical therapy next week.
