Student Found Wandering Alone After Bus Drops Her at Wrong Location

A 4-year-old girl was found wandering alone by a man in a rural Florida neighborhood, after the bus driver left her at the wrong bus stop on the second day of school, reported My Sun Coast News.

According to the news report, the child was dropped off by a Levy County school bus on Northeast Highway 27, when a man that was mowing his lawn saw the girl wandering around.

The man, whose identity was not disclosed at this time, reportedly called the Sherriff’s office immediately after seeing the child alone, as he had never seen the girl before.

The pre-kindergartener rode the bus with her older brother. After the boy was dropped off at his correct stop, the parents had to chase down the bus to ask about their daughter.

The bus driver reportedly told the parents there were no pre-K students on his bus.

The Levy County Sherriff’s office does not consider the incident a criminal matter and said the school district should address any concerns.

Christopher Cowart, Levy County Schools superintendent said via the article that an investigation regarding the incident is being conducted and reinforces that their district believes the safety of their students is the number one priority.
