Edmonton school bus driver arrested after wild ride


EDMONTON (660 NEWS) – The bus ride home for about 20 elementary school kids was anything but elementary Wednesday afternoon.

Police in Southwest Edmonton received reports of a school bus driving erratically shortly after school was let out.

The bus is said to have taken a trip over a curb, knocking over a street sign, and stopping in the middle of the road. All of this coming before the bus was seen weaving in and out of its lane.

Police stopped the bus 15 minutes after the call came in at 3:25.

Another bus was shortly dispatched to pick up the kids.

None of the children were hurt and the 39-year-old driver was taken into custody where she is awaiting charges.
