Driver suspended after student left on school bus


PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bus company officials say a Pittsburgh bus driver is suspended after she left a sleeping first grader on the bus.

Officials say Pat Kinnear did not see the boy sleeping on the bus when she dropped off students Monday at Linden Elementary School in Pittsburgh. The boy was found wandering the bus terminal by another driver and returned to school.

Kinnear’s husband, Terry, manages the bus terminal. He says the Roenigk bus company has suspended her while it investigates.

In October, another Roenigk driver was charged with child endangerment after a sleeping kindergartner was left aboard a school bus.
