Yup. Sunrise at 7:43 today in Hinckley.
Another thing I'm wondering about...why was the bus in a situ that required it to be backing up?
Per the link in post #5...Police said this was the first day for the bus driver on this route.
So that sorta' explains why/ how the driver got the bus into the mess of needing to back up. Big questions remain about some very apparent lapses in the school district's bus driver training practices. Obviously the new driver did not know the route.
Not sure backing a bus is unusual. Bus picking up my across the road neighbor’s children backs up at our barn driveway. Otherwise twenty miles is added to the bus route.
