School Bus Driver Facing Disciplinary Action After Girl Left On Bus

WALKERSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Frederick County public school officials say a bus driver who drove home last week with a sleeping 5-year-old girl on board is facing disciplinary action.

Spokeswoman Marita Loose told The Frederick News-Post on Wednesday that the driver was not on her route in Walkersville this week. Loose said she could not say when the driver will return to her route because the investigation is ongoing.

Kiki Myers says her daughter Kemiyah told her that she awoke in the parked bus outside the driver’s home in the early afternoon last Tuesday. The girl said she went to the house and asked the driver to take her to school.

Loose has said the bus driver failed to check the bus after her last stop to make sure it was empty.
