6-year-old boy left on school bus for 7 hours in Lacey

The Associated Press

LACEY — A school bus driver responsible for leaving a special-needs first-grader on the bus for seven hours in Lacey has been fired.

It was a substitute driver who picked up the 6-year-old boy Tuesday afternoon at Lydia Hawk Elementary School.

KOMO reports the boy was supposed to be dropped off at a day care but instead rode the bus to the school district’s transportation yard where the bus was parked for the night.

The foster mother assumed the boy’s biological mother had picked him up from the day care. He wasn’t reported missing for hours.

Thurston County sheriff’s deputies found him just before 11 p.m.

The district says the driver admitted he didn’t check the bus before parking. He was fired Wednesday.
