School bus without AC

Bond Set for Special Education Bus Driver Accused of Cruel Punishment to Children Ex-School Bus Driver Faces Multiple Charges In the Lexington County, South Carolina, a former school bus driver for the Lexington School District Two currently faces multiple charges for allegedly punishing special education children by intentionally turning off the air conditioning on the school bus. Patricia Douglas, 46, has now been charged with ten misdemeanor counts of cruelty to children. A judge has set a personal recognizance bond for Douglas at $4,650, which does not require her to pay any upfront financial deposit. A Punishment on A Hot Sunny Day According to the South Congaree Police incident report, the incident took place on May 7 when Douglas purposely shut off the school bus’s air conditioning system as a form of discipline for the students on board. The report particularly emphasized that the weather on that day had reached a high of 91 degrees with clear and sunny skies. A Shocking Revelation from the Bus Driver One of the children’s parents, Melissa Derosier, relayed how she was informed by Douglas herself that she had turned off the air conditioning as a method of punishment. Derosier recounted, “She said, ‘I took the air away from the kids as harsh punishment.’ I didn’t say anything to her, I was so shocked.” The Impact on the Special Children Akera Allen, whose son with epilepsy was a rider on the bus, told reporters how her son came home feeling sick specifically from the bus ride under the extreme heat. She noted that her son ended up vomiting at home and even required hospitalization, which then led to his absence from school during the state test the following day due to required observations at the hospital. Termination and Legal Consequences Following the incident, Lexington School District Two verified that Douglas is no longer employed with the District. In a statement, the district mentioned, “The district maintains policies about staff conduct with students, and violations of these policies can lead to discipline, up to and including termination and possible legal consequences.” Douglas is expected to appear again in court on June 12 at 8:30 am. The case continues to unfold as further investigations are being conducted.

Intersection Collision Sunset Reopens.

<body> Lanes Reopen After Unusual Collision Involving Martial Arts Bus and LPD Patrol Vehicle Sunset Blvd. Intersection Fully Operational Once More Sunset Boulevard in Lexington, South Carolina, has finally resumed normal traffic flow after a peculiar accident occurred earlier today. Authorities report that a martial arts school bus from Legacy Martial Arts and a Lexington Police Department (LPD) patrol vehicle were involved in a collision at the intersection of Sunset Blvd./US-378 and Palmetto Park Boulevard. The accident led to a temporary closure of the inbound lanes. Collision Details The unusual incident is believed to have been caused due to traffic congestion. The exact details of the accident are not yet clear, as South Carolina Highway Patrol is still investigating the circumstances surrounding this peculiar collision. The patrol vehicle alongside the martial arts bus were soon removed from the road, thus ending a major part of the disruption. No Injuries but Necessary Precautionary Measures Fortunately, neither the bus driver nor the children onboard were injured in the accident. There were reportedly eight students inside the bus at the time of the incident, and they appeared to be unharmed. Following the collision, all the children were safely released to their guardians or sent back to the after-school program center. On the other hand, the officer involved in the collision was taken by Emergency Medical Services to a local hospital as a precautionary measure for a thorough check-up. Temporary Detours and Traffic Instructions Due to the accident, traffic was temporarily rerouted through the Hobby Lobby parking lot to Saluda Springs Road. The Lexington Police Department had advised commuters to expect congestion and if possible, avoid the area until the wreckage was cleared and the investigation concluded. Resume of Normalcy As the bus and LPD patrol vehicle have now been removed from the scene and the lanes have reopened, normal traffic flow has resumed. It is indeed fortunate that no injuries were reported and the children aboard the bus were unharmed. The swift response from law enforcement and other community members helped minimize the potential impact of the collision. This accident highlights the importance of stringent driving protocols and traffic supervision in urban areas, especially during heavy traffic hours. Local authorities continue to encourage drivers to exercise caution and follow traffic rules in order to maintain the safety of the roads and the well-being of the community. </body>
