A police report of a school bus/vehicle accident says two passengers on the bus were injured and transported to Mercy Regional… one 17 years old, the other 76 years old.
Why do we have a 76 year old riding as a passenger on a school bus?? Is a 76 year old supposed to be the disciplinarian? Or, is that the way we old folk get free entertainment, by taking school bus rides. Guess it would be more exciting than bridge or shuffleboard. What is the liability exposure of the school if we have the elderly… and, yes, I’m there… riding the buses? Do we allow friends of the school bus drivers to ride along? Just seems like asking for a big lawsuit when someone slips and falls getting up and down the steps of the bus.
