The daughter of a friend of mine (who also happens to be my 6 year old's best friend) was on the bus that was hit.
What do you all think about the teen driver just getting "wreckless driving" citation? I think it was a slap on the wrist compared to what he SHOULD have gotten, putting two kids in the hospital ICU, and tramatizing an entire bus load of children!
(Yes, I know he got more than just wreckless driving, but I feel the whole expired tags is more on his parents than him, and not really a part of why this happened.)

We just had the third school bus vs vehicle accident in this area so far this year. First one was the first week of school, a drunk hit the bus (at 8am mind you) spun it around and into a cornfield, no serious injuries. It was a new bus with seat-belts for the kiddos the second was another drunk (at 3pm) T-boned a bus and again sent it into a cornfield, only one child sent to hospital for a check. The one that just happened I have not followed up on, so not sure of the details.
So the first two were charged with DUI/OUI, not sure of what else because the stories fell off the radar quickly.
