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.
I’m familiar with the area. Crestview Dr. is a dead end road. I had read somewhere yesterday that the driver was a substitute and that the regular driver normally stopped on W130th at Crestview.
My hunch is that the substitute read the route incorrectly and turned onto Crestview by accident. That’s why the lady was trying to help the driver back onto W130th.
This is just a tragic story - 3 children losing both parents within a few months.....
