Daughter says Canton bus driver slandered

To the Editor:

I am sick and tired of you people falsely reporting this story! I am pursing legal action against several media outlets.

My dad doesn’t drink and he doesn’t do drugs. I saw the bus and maybe if you people take a closer look at the right front tire there are two cuts in it. One that caused the bus to swerve and the second one occurred after the bus went off the road.

Why don’t you people use some common sense? If my dad was using drugs, the bus would have flipped and there would have been major injuries and casualties. As it was, he had to make a split second decision where to put the bus so no one would get hurt. The bus did not flip!

If you need some more common sense, why don’t you attend a Stop DWI seminar which sometimes includes ability impaired by use of drugs. If you are too good for that, why don’t you take a schoolbus and go off the road like he did and keep that bus from tipping over. I’ll bet you any amount of money that you can’t keep a schoolbus from flipping over.

Please quit slandering my dad!
