Authorities are looking into the incident after the driver of a WFPS bus ordered the child to depart with him



Horace, North Dakota – Following a ‘strange’ incident on a Horace bus route last week, sheriff deputies are reportedly looking into a man’s alleged aggressive driving.

Parents of children riding bus #4 were informed of an incident on the drop-off route on January 27 via email on Wednesday morning.

The email states, “a motorist became aggressive towards Bus #4 near the intersection of County Road 17 S. and 76th Ave. S.” The email goes on to say the bus driver eventually stopped on the road “out of an abundance of caution and to avoid an accident.” According to school officials, the belligerent driver then got on the bus and insisted his kid get off with him. The kid allegedly complied, and the bus continued on its way.

According to authorities, neither the bus nor the children on it were damaged. The incident and the man involved are currently being looked into by the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.

“The transportation department will ensure all drivers are aware and trained in safe driving practices to avoid situations like this in the future. The district is committed to communicating with families in a timelier manner when unusual situations like this arise during a route. The safety of our learners and staff is our first priority,” the email states.
