In an ongoing story that started on 12/7/2017 around 4pm. Children were exiting a school bus on Neupert Road in Cabot. While children were getting off of the bus a Consolidated Communications driver came flying down Neupert road. Watching the video you will see the Consolidated Communications driver slow down briefly, then ultimately while a child is on the street-gun the van, swerve to miss the bar that comes out of the side of the bus, drive through my yard, and then continue to take off.
I was immediately alerted of this incident. (yup this is my house covered in cameras) I was stunned when I watched the cameras. I immediately called Consolidated Communications and was told “we will take action if you send us the video and not release the video” I ignored that.
I then called W L Roenigk Inc. bus company, the bus company informed me the driver filed a report, but nothing could be done by PSP because the bus company does not have the licence plate. I then asked if the bus had cameras. I was informed that in fact a lot of the buses do not have cameras, and this is something the school district said is not in the budget. And that only a select few buses have cameras because the school says that cameras on the buses are not in the budget.
And the conversation got real interesting with a spokesperson of W L Roenigk Inc. This nice young lady I spoke to went on to tell me that A manager of Consolidated communication from the Gibsonia office named Chuck Shaw contacted the bus company-but they contacted the bus company to see If the bus company has seen MY video yet. Not seeking information of the drivers grave mistake that could have killed a child. Basically Consolidated wanted to cover this up at any and all costs.
I was granted the privileged of talking to Mr Shaw on 12/8/2017. Shaw went on to tell me that this unknown Consolidated driver made a statement that he “does not recall any incidents” basically the driver said this was a story being made up. So then the video was released. I have found myself wondering if the driver has “recalled” this incident since the video was posted here.
I spoke with Mr Shaw on the phone on 12/8/17. Shaw I found to be very concerned about the incident, but when asked what action is going to be taken against the driver I was told “It will be dealt with” So let me get this right? Your driver almost killed a child and the best you can come up with it will be dealt with??
I have not posted this to Facebook quite yet, I am still working on this, look for updates soon. Including additional video of the incident from multiple angles
