School Bus Incident in Penbrook from November 17, 2017

On November 17, 2017 an incident occurred at 28th and Walnut Streets where several dozen elementary school students got off the school bus at the wrong location.  The substitute school bus driver had driven a different route to the regular bus stop at the North 28th Street and Ludwig Street and the students exited the bus.  There were to have been four other stops after this stop but instead all of the students got off at that bus stop.   A number of parents realizing something was wrong, helped students cross busy streets and get to their homes.  The intervening parents are to be commended for their prompt action.  

After completing the investigation and conferring with the District Attorney’s office, it is determined that no criminal conduct occurred.  The incident, while unsettling, does not rise to criminal behavior.
