Marion County School Officials Criticize Bus Driver
A bus fight in Marion county left one 13 year old girl unconscious.
On Thursday officials in Marion County said the driver of that bus broke several rules.
Officials say the driver hadn't taken attendance, didn't require the kids to abide by the seating chart and didn't maintain control of the bus.
But union members representing bus drivers in Marion County said it wasn't the driver's fault and that a bus aid should have been on that problem route to help the driver who was just filling in.
The bus driver quit soon after the fight.
