Mother says young daughter left on bus while driver got lunch
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) A Kalamazoo mother has filed a police report after she says her daughter was left alone on a school bus while the bus driver got lunch.
5-year-old Mya left home Tuesday morning, excited for her first day of kindergarten, but her mother, Jaqueline King, says by the time she got off the bus Tuesday afternoon, she was in tears.
King says her daughter told her the driver stopped at Wendys and left her on the bus.
King says she immediately called the Kalamazoo Public Schools Transportation Office and a man there said hed look at the surveillance video and call her back.
The guy told me that he did see that other guy, the bus driver, get off the bus and then went into Wendys, said King. Left the door open and the camera got her in the front seat crying while he was in Wendys.
King says it could have been much worse, considering that she was told the door to the school bus was left open the whole time.
A spokesperson for Kalamazoo Public Schools told Newschannel 3 that the district is aware of the allegations and will be reviewing the tape in question.
