  1. Glad the kids and bus driver are going to be OK. God was with them all. I hope the driver of the vehicle is caught and hung. LOW LIFE P.O.S. to run after hitting a bus full of kids. I mean it is bad anytime but wow!

    • While it is horrible and against the law what happened – the crimes committed are not death penalty crimes. This isn’t the Wild West. I am all for the death penalty in many cases but these are the crimes he has been charged with:

      Felony hit and run
      No liability insurance
      Expired registration
      Drive while license revoked
      Display fictitious registration
      Expired inspection
      Unsafe movement

      This was taken from w r a l so I assume it is correct…but I am just going by what is printed on their site.

    • Steve- I think the crimes committed were bad and I am pro death penalty – but I hope you don’t really believe this is a death penalty case. He was charged with several crimes but none rise to the level required by any state for death. We aren’t Russia – not yet. Give MTG and her ilk time and we will be…

  2. They say that the injuries weren’t life threatening, but a few of them were definitely serious! My husband and I are friends with a guy whose son was on that bus, and he has a broken arm, broken jaw and broken nose, and is still in the hospital days later. Another girl has a broken leg and just got released from the hospital yesterday! Several of those children went to the hospital, but those are only the injuries I have confirmed information about. So this has been a bit downplayed, as far as what they are releasing of those children’s injuries.
