As five hundred children die every year from auto accidents and only five through using school buses, News Today says as well.

There were 15 counselors, five therapy dogs, hundreds of teddy bears and thousands of hugs for the students of Woodmore Elementary School who continue to grieve, said Brenda Adamson-Cothran, the school's principal.

The suit alleges Curtez has sustained "significant, disfiguring and permanent injuries, experienced pain and suffering as a result of those personal injuries, and has suffered psychological damages as a result of the crash".

The accident has claimed six lives, and Haslam says it appears to be a sign of deeper problems.

The driver of the bus involved in Monday's fatal wreck in Chattanooga has been charged with vehicular homicide as allegations are he was speeding at the time of the accident.

Chattanooga police spokeswoman Elisa Myzal said the person "walked out in front of the bus and an ambulance that were coming" and was hit by the bus.

Cook said Walker is a respected man and the father of a 3-year-old son.

Also quoting school district records, Associated Press late Friday reported two written statements by students complaining about Walker's driving.

When it comes to children transported back and forth to school on school buses, there has been an ongoing debate on whether the buses should be required to have seat belts/shoulder harnesses.

The bus diver drives fast.

Going back to at least September, parents and students had complained to Hamilton County Department of Education employees about the driver's alleged disregard for children's safety, records show.

The attorney for the driver in a deadly Chattanooga school bus crash said her client will likely plead not guilty.

The school said they have counselors in place for students to receive support if they need to talk to anyone. Schools buses are a safe mode of transportation but seat belts are yet another step to ensure security as it is the elders' prime responsibility. How can a school bus company fail to fully screen the backgrounds of drivers who will be transporting such vulnerable passengers?

Three of the students killed were in fourth grade, one was in first grade and another in kindergarten, Hamilton County Schools Interim Superintendent Kirk Kelly says.

Duke said he could not comment further because he did not want to compromise the investigations.
