BC-IA--School Bus Driver Quits/118
Iowa school bus driver quits midway through route
WAUKEE, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa school district had to dispatch a second bus and driver to pick up students because the first driver quit midway through her morning route.
The incident occurred Tuesday morning in Waukee. Waukee Community School District spokeswoman Nicole Lawrence says no students were endangered.
The driver picked up some students and took them to school before returning the bus to the district lot. The second bus was sent out when district administrator learned some students had not been picked up.
It's not clear what made the bus driver quit so abruptly. A representative for the district bus service contactor did not return calls seeking comment.
The driver's name has not been released.
