In Memphis, Tennessee, it was reported by ABC 24 Eyewitness News that a 1 year old girl was hit by a school bus at her day care center -Premier Kids Enrichment Center which is located on North Watkins in Frayser.
The incident could have easily resulted in serious personal injuries. Fortunately, only minor injuries were reported. Certainly, it would be quite harrowing for a family member to be informed of an incident of this nature. It is also disturbing that the incident happened at all since a 1 year old should have very close supervision especially when in or near school or day care buses and vans.
Day care centers have a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for children both inside and outside of the facility. This is especially true when transportation services are provided. If you have a child in day care, make sure you speak to the child care providers, bus drivers, and administrators about transportation safety and the policies and procedures for the facility.
