Ames terminates bus driver involved in fatal accident
The bus driver who fatally struck a female university student last December was recently terminated by the City of Ames, an article of Omaha World-Herald reported on November 26.
According to a legal counsel representing Ames City, they terminated the 24-year-old bus driver on November 22 who had failed to inform authorities that he struck an ISU student. The driver who was then an employee of CyRide was only terminated several months after the incident, and during that time, he had received salary amounting to $28,533. Reports also revealed that the driver was put into jail for 30 days after pleading guilty for not reporting an accident. The driver has been considered to be working for the City of Ames as his employer, CyRide, is funded by the city.
