JSD should have a policy that drivers need to be 65 years young or younger. Mr. Bob, a great man bye the way was well into his 70's. I am sure that can be very stressful job. JSD can buy fancy administation building off bank that was totally un called for so why dont they hire drivers, pay em very well so they can make a living instead of hiring part time help. Also, administration for all schools should be located on campus, not off campus. Thats bull!!!!

You can hear the brats screaming like the wild animals they are before you even see the bus going through Candlewood. Nobody is going to be able to concentrate on their driving with that crap going on, no matter how young or old they are. I hear it's the same on every route in Valley View. Bunch of uncivilized crazies raising their kids to be even worse. They need discipline in the worst way. The parents are a huge fail. It's a shame to put the onus on the schools, but somebody better step up to the plate before it's too late.

The accident occurred at Main and Johnson. That's clear across town from Candlewood. Maybe kids all over town need discipline and not just those that live in the Valley View school district.

I wonder if the bus driver had some sort of medical issue. Seems rather strange to hit other cars stopped at a red light with enough force to push two of them into the intersection.

Believe he fell asleep at the well.. Stating zero facts only what was told but I mean that happens to young people all the time behind the wheel not just old people .. Stay up a little later than normal wake up a little sooner to make sure a bus is warm for the kids and you close ur eyes for a second and that's a second to Long... But why get on and bash.. Could happen to anyone .. Time to grow up.. These days older people have to work like anyone else .. Can't afford not to...

I was involved in that accident and thought there was something wrong with the driver or the bus.
He pushed two trucks through the intersection and hit me with enough force to turn my car 180 degrees. He never slowed down until he jumped the curb and hit the fence.

In light of those feelings, have you considered relocating to another area?
