Some parents in Hawaii Island are unhappy about the manner in which two school bus drivers handled the situation when they collided. When auto accidents occur, and there is any possibility of injuries, one would expect the drivers to alert authorities. However, when two buses that belong to the same company recently crashed, the drivers did not even advise the school of the accident.
Reportedly, both buses, each with 25 students, were heading in the same direction on Queen Kaahumanu Highway when the one rear-ended the other. The drivers failed to call police or emergency services and ordered two replacement buses instead. One parent heard his daughter speak on her phone to a friend on the bus, and he immediately called his son who was also a bus passenger.
