PD: Child left alone on Somerset school bus
SOMERSET, Ky. (WTVQ)- Police in Somerset say a 6-year-old girl was left alone on a school bus for as long as two hours.
Police say it happened Tuesday afternoon during a field trip to Skaters Paradise. According to investigators, the bus driver dropped the children off, then parked in a Walmart parking lot. They say the driver then walked next door to Lowe’s.
According to police, someone noticed the child on the empty bus and called 911. They say the school district is doing its own investigation into what happened. Police say they do not expect to file charges. They say it appears there was a miscommunication between the bus driver and the adults who were with the children.
