A special needs student died after falling off a moving school bus.  Now officials say the bus driver may have violated safety protocols.

Ron Matz reports officials say the bus should not have been moving when the student fell out.

City school leaders say the bus driver should have immediately stopped the bus when Jeremy Jennings Jr. began fighting with another student.

After the fight, the 6-year-old tried to leave the bus through the back door, taking a fatal fall.

According to WJZ’s media partner, The Baltimore Sun, city school leaders are now reviewing protocols for transporting special needs students.

The boy’s family plans to file a lawsuit.
