A First Student bus Driver ran a stop sign and hit my vehicle. My vehicle was damaged along the passenger side. I did not have a stop sign or light and the bus driver kept saying "I didn't see you!" I didn't see you!" I called 9-1-1 and while I was talking to them to get police to the scene (before we even exchanged information) the First Student dispatch instructed the driver (who was completely shook and should not have been driving after the accident) to leave the accident scene and go pick up the kids because she was late. This is irresponsible and dangerous for the kids and the driver. She left the scene as instructed. I called the company and sent them the accident report (I had witness statements too), the company refused to provide insurance information stating there was no police report (remember they left the scene before the police came). This is a dishonest company who is not concerned about passenger, driver, or other people's safety. They need to be shut down or get new leadership!
The driver of First Student bus #111454 sped across Rainier Ave S west up McClellan St in the curb lane which was running out next to me this morning at 7:45, forcing its way in front of me. By 'forcing,' the bus would have clearly pushed me into oncoming traffic had I not almost stopped to let it in front of me. Really, is getting one more car length ahead worth endangering passengers and other drivers?
