On January 29th, a school bus on it's way to Parkwood and Pearl Stephens Elementary schools crashed on Forest Park Drive. The crash sent several students to the hospital and parents rushed to find out if their kids were safe. However, one couple received unbearable news that has led them to filing a lawsuit against the school district for reckless driving.
The driver of a school bus that crashed in Chattanooga, Tennessee in late 2016 was recently found guilty of six counts of negligent homicide. In November 2016, the school bus was carrying 37 elementary school students when it tipped over and crashed into a tree. Six children died in the crash. In another crash that occurred in late January, a Houston County school bus overturned while transporting 35 students. One student died in the crash and multiple others suffered injuries.
