I have a child on those buses everyday and I can tell you my child's bus driver and those I see are not careless. My child's bus driver slowly arrives and departs each bus stop and knows each child by name. She is a careful driver as are most I have seen. The bus driver today was not at fault and in fact took care of all children on the bus until help arrived. The mini van driver is believed to be at fault here....too many times I have seen reckless drivers taking the turns too fast and disregarding bus signals, etc. I am not saying the mini van driver did anything wrong at this point except cross the double yellow lines but don't blame the bus driver she did everything she could.

This tragic accident was of no fault of the bus driver. Yes, very tragic for the minivan driver but unfortunatley he crossed the double yellows. I live in Vernon and my husband is a local police officer so the facts are that the van driver was not in control of his vehicle and thank god nobody else was seriously hurt. The bus driver was completely caught off guard and did nothing wrong . Who are you NJ Mom from new Bruswick to place blame on the bus driver, Be thankful she was a good driver or it could of been a much worse accident. Get the facts before you blame others.

We have a great great great bus driver this year.
A piece of smelly brown crap one last year.
Both types are out there.
Make sure you call and tell when they are good AND bad so we can keep the good ones and dump the bad ones.

An unfortunate accident. And just that "accident". Why judge?
