school bus throwingPhoto: A local driver tells TLS his vehicle was struck by what he believes may have been an apple by children on a bus on Friday.

The driver relates that he was driving behind a school bus in the area of Mark Drive on Friday afternoon when he noticed several children sticking their heads from the bus. One of the children then threw an item – either intentionally or unintentionally – which struck his windshield, the driver says.

The driver says he followed the bus until Pine Street and MLK and attempted to catch the driver’s attention by honking him, but the bus failed to stop.

The driver phones police and provided the, with the bus information. He’s hoping the awareness will prompt school officials and bus drivers to take the incident seriously. [TLS]

  1. I have reported incidents over the years to the building principals or assistant principals. They take these incidents seriously and try their best to find and discipline the involved students.

  2. Have you ever worked with. Bigger kids. How do you expect to keep them belted in after they leave school??!!
    Bus monitor??? Who will pay? Not you!

  3. No surprises. Many drivers believe they are on the Auto-Bahn while their young passenger’s are standing, yucking it up like it were some amusement ride. Perhaps the tossing of the apple was a distress signal, aimed at getting the attention of a concerned citizen.
    Yep, welcome to The Wild East. ..

  4. Jas- therefore what? whatever happened to good old fashioned discipline?

    Of course the school should be notified and the staff should make it a priority to discuss with our children how to behave on a bus. If not, there should be ramifications – such as loosing bus privileges.

    Such behavior is very unbecoming.

  5. Maybe they check before leaving the school property but the children must undo the belts after the bus pulls out because every bus that goes past my house has children standing and hanging out the windows yelling. Maybe if the parents taught the children to sit still and buckle up in cars they would do so on the school bus.

  6. I only posted at 12.56 please do not use my initials JAS. And yes I work for a school and pick up the bus monitors at the last stop and the parents pay. JAS respectfully

  7. Wasn’t there an incident several years ago that a student on a bus threw a cookie at a police officer? Kids dont have any respect these days. It all starts at home. Whats next? I think that police officer even pulled the bus over. Unbelievable! Where is Sgt. Butterworth or Detective F. M. Gomez to help with these children.

  8. I can tell you this, we can not force the kids on the bus to wear seat belts. some of them do most do not, the company I work for does have camera’s on them, and my students do sit in their seats and for those that feel that they don’t have to sit, I pull the bus over until they sit, and I do not sped in my bus either, have no need to , I get them to school and home safe and sound.

  9. a couple of years ago some kids threw cookies out at vehicles from the bus. The police stopped them and the parents complained about the police. I guess it takes someone to get conked on the head or something to break a passing car windshield causing the driver of the car to become injured or worse or hitting someone with their vehicle.

  10. An apple? Big deal!!!

    People live very sad, boring lives if they can’t just laugh off and move on when a kid throws an apple out of a bus window!

    Sad, sad, sad.

  11. Truthfully

    we know it; when we were kids we had fun..

    But one thing they always warned me NEVER stick your head out of a moving school bus or car, besides the fact of your head C”V could be cut off it’s showing you don’t care about your own safety!

    That’s what I was taught in school…

  12. What do you mean private or public government sponsored schools? Nothing should be thrown out of windows. But look around and you see adults throwing things from car windows,guess that’s where they are learning. As the saying goes learn by example.

  13. I was caught in a rainstorm and got splashed by the traffic. I was cold, wet and miserable. At a corner, a child on a SCHI bus smiled and waved at me. It warmed me immeasurably and cheered me up for the rest of the day. To gaze in the eyes of such goodness is a privilege I will remember for a long time. I pledged to give to SCHI on the spot. I only wish I could tell the child’s mother, but I suppose this could be directed to all the parents of the children at SCHI. Those children are special in so many ways.

  14. last year i was on my way to my next school and i was behind a bus where i kid threw a bottle out and just missed my wind shield. good thing i didnt have students on my bus at the time. it almost caused me to have an accident. and like the other bus driver i make my kids sit down if they dont stay seated i pull over until they do. as far as the driver of the bus getting a fine it should be the parents who should pay the fine.
