A substitute bus driver for the Douglas County School District allegedly tried to control the children on his vessel by slamming on the brakes, leaving some of them severely traumatized.
On March 1, a 61-year-old school bus driver from Castle Rock was substituting for the regular driver on a bus from Castle Rock Elementary. The riders ranged in age from kindergarten to 6th grade.
It was reported that the man felt like the children were acting up. He was reportedly having difficulty getting them to quiet down, behave, and stay in their seats.
