NAPLES, Fla. (AP) —An 11-year-old in southwest Florida stopped a school bus after its driver became ill and lost control.
Jackson Bonar was the last child on the bus Tuesday afternoon. The bus was two streets away from his home when the driver began driving erratically.
Jackson tells the Naples Daily News that the driver "made a strange face" and fell against the window.
Jackson says the bus was headed toward a palm tree, so he jumped out of his seat, hit the brakes and steered into a chain-link fence. The sixth-grader says he worried that if the bus hit a tree, the impact would trigger the air bag and hurt the driver more.
Passersby helped open the bus doors and get the driver medical attention. The driver was hospitalized.
