While the article doesn't mention Newton County Sheriff's Dept, the picture clearly shows a Newton County car at the scene of the accident. I can see where princesse might have made that assumption. ;)
I've tried to stay out of the discussion about this accident, to some extent. My daughter was one of the three children taken by ambulance for her injuries. She is still very swollen and sore from her injuries, and she remains out of school per doctor's orders. I am very disappointed to know that no citations were issued. I am also very disappointed to know that this was preventable. I know for a fact that I am not the only parent that has expressed concern to the board of transportation prior to this accident about the safety of the buses. We've had numerous problems this year alone before this, many of which myself and my neighbors have called the county about. Nothing is being done to protect our children! After all the recent bus accidents and incidents reported in recent months, I personally feel like every bus driver in the state of Georgia needs to have updated safety training.
I couldn't agree more! If it had been a driver of a car that ran the stop sign and hit the bus (as was the case with this bus driver), the driver of the car would've received a ticket. My daughter was one of the three taken by ambulance. She remains out of school and has had to endure x-rays and a CT scan. At her follow-up with her pediatrician, she has been instructed to stay out of school until this Friday as she is still very swollen and is in severe pain. The bus driver that ran the stop sign needs to be held accountable for the damage she caused to my children and the others on board that bus!
