Many parents who send their children to preschool rely on their school's transportation options, including school buses and vans. Although it can be a bit scary waving goodbye to their little ones for the first time, most parents are happy to avoid the extra hassle of a pickup and drop-off every day on their way to and from work. And in the case of preschool programs that benefit low-income families, such as Head Start, that transportation is even more valuable, especially for families who don't own a car.
All parents who rely on this bus transportation presume that their children will be kept safe from harm as they travel to and from school. But a recent accident in the Cincinnati area has left two children dead, others injured and the victims' families at a complete loss.
