Bradford School Bus Driver Cited

A school bus driver has been cited following an incident that injured an 8-year-old Bradford girl.

58-year-old Jack Spring has resigned from his job as well.

Foster Township Police say at around 4:30 on December 6 the girl was getting off the bus on Bolivar Drive when her backpack got caught in the bus door. Spring told police he was distracted by another child that got out of her seat and got between him and the door of the bus. He says he didn’t see that the backpack was caught when he started moving the bus.

The bus dragged the girl about the length of the bus until she got separated from the bag, and rolled off the side of the road and into a yard. She suffered a broken arm, scrapes and bruises.

Spring is cited for careless driving.
