What Are Bus Drivers' Obligations When Dropping Off Students?
Stephanie Watts et al. (including Three Rivers Local School District) v. Amber Sallee et al., Case no. 2014-0727
First District Court of Appeals (Hamilton County)
Does lawsuit against school district involving student who exited a school bus and was injured after the bus driver had traveled further along the bus route encompass the operation of a motor vehicle?
Does a school bus driver violate state law when the driver continues on the bus route after child runs off without permission without reaching a place of safety on the side of the road where the child lives?
Does a violation of the statute prohibiting bus drivers from starting the bus until a child is in a safe place on the child's residence side of the road involve negligent supervision of a child rather than negligent operation of a motor vehicle?
