Story By Wade Cameron

A Lufkin school bus driver has been fired after school transportation officials say she left a three year old child locked in a bus for several hours. Transportation director mike jones says joann spellman forgot to check her bus after Friday morning's route. The child was found later in the day and immediately returned home.

The child was not injured but Jones says they have very strict guidelines for making sure the children are safe, and this was a serious violation of those rules. The parents of the child say they want the driver to be charged with child endangerment.
