A mother has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against First Student Inc., a bus company, after a bus driver struck and killed her teenager.
The northwest Missouri bus driver plead guilty to careless and imprudent driving after the accident. The driver admitted to failing to yield to a right-of-way at a crosswalk and striking the 16-year-old.
The teenager was later pronounced dead at the hospital. For the misdemeanor plea, the bus driver received two years probation, 15 days of shock detention, and 200 hours of community service.
Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim in the accident.
