    Was the bus driver injured at all? I haven't read anywhere that he sustained any injuries.

    I wondered the same thing. Based on the mug shot he looks fine.

    A school bus driver, Johnthony Walker, 24, has been charged in connection to a crash that killed five young children in Tennessee. Police confirmed Tuesday morning that the bus was traveling at a high rate of speed, "well above the posted speed limit."

    Of the five deaths, interim superintendent Kirk Kelly of the Hamilton County Department of Education told reporters this morning, three of the children were in fourth-grade, one was in first-grade and the other was a kindergartner, officials said.
    Six children are still in intensive care.

    Two siblings who were on the bus have said that the bus driver asked the children if, "they were ready to die?".

    It seems to me that might have been a REALLY, REALLY unfortunate and coincidental choice of words. It sounds like he was driving very recklessly, and said that to seem like a wild crazy guy.

    Maybe, but why speed and drive really recklessly with a bus full of little children? It makes no sense.

    My two cents here. A 24 year old doesn't have enough driving experience to handle a bus full of kids...period! If he did do this on purpose, there is no punishment fitting for him.

    Prayers to all these families and for those babies still fighting to live in intensive care.

    It makes zero sense at all, I agree. But I really don't think this man intended to kill the children - just intended to do something very very stupid.

    It's so rare for bus drivers - in my observation - to be careless. That's why riding a bus to school is statistically a very safe way to get there.

    This guy seems young to be a bus driver - he's still in the demographic that car insurance companies charge a premium for. I wonder if the school district had a hard time recruiting bus drivers and couldn't be more selective than this in hiring?

    Help me understand why Google would do that. I don't see the necessity...but I'm assuming there is one. Shed light on it for me, please.

    So heartbreaking. I really hope this was not on purpose. That is just too awful to think about. We need to have trust that people are not willfully harming our children.

    Police said the driver of the bus, Walker, was arrested and a warrant has been issued to remove the black box from the bus and review evidence on the bus’ video cameras. Kelly said Tuesday morning the school would cooperate with the investigation.

    [...]

    According to the affidavit, "the defendant was driving the school bus at a high rate of speed, well above the posted speed limit of 30MPH," based on both witness statements and physical evidence.

    Police say Walker cooperated with authorities and is in custody. They haven’t revealed how long he’s worked for Woodmere Elementary School. Walker graduated from Brainerd High School in 2011, a public high school in Chattanooga.

    Names of those killed have not yet been released; three were in the fourth grade, one was in first grade and one was in kindergarten.

    "He was going real fast and he hit a garbage bag," one of the children who was onboard told CNN affiliate WDEF-TV. "And we then hit a mailbox, then we flipped over and hit a tree real hard."

    Holy everything I really hope this wasn't purposeful! What the actual freak? That's awful!

    On the seatbelt issue, I taught preschool for years and we had 5 point harnesses on every single child. Did it take time? Yes. Was it worth it? Yes. Was it annoying and back breaking bending over to buckle all those wiggly worms? Yep.

    I was tiny when I was a kindergartener and rode the bus to school. If he went over big bumps sometimes my head would hit the ceiling of the bus and it scared me half to pieces. I don't care how padded the seats are the ceiling isn't.

    Eta: I keep thinking about Otto from the Simpsons.
