Driver Ill; Boy, 12, Guides Bus to Safety
A sixth-grader guided a school bus carrying 33 children to safety after the driver fainted behind the wheel.
Kenny Perrone, 12, was sitting behind Donald Snyder when the driver blacked out while pulling into the parking lot of Dunnellon Middle School.
Perrone said: “The bus was swerving all over the place” and appeared to be headed for a telephone pole. “The bus started going faster and faster and so I stepped in and hit the brakes as hard as I could.”
