Bus driver fired for getting lost and exposing himself to kids

Conroe -

Leslie Foster-Sorrell has her 12-year-old daughter text or call when her bus arrives each morning at Irons Jr. High.

Last Friday Foster-Sorell says her daughter was on the way to school when she called to say her bus driver got lost.

"I hear a bunch of yelling and screaming, just total chaos in the background and I'm having a hard time hearing her," Foster-Sorell said. "I'm freaking out because I don't know what's going on, then she tells me they're lost in a subdivision."

The frantic mother says her daughter told her the driver put the bus into park, got out and walked to a nearby fence.

"Proceeds to relieve himself in front of the students on the bus," Foster-Sorell said. "They tell me he didn't really try to hide himself they actually saw him"

When she called the transportation department Foster-Sorrell says she was told the driver had become disoriented and another driver was being sent to take the kids to school.

She says later she learned from her daughter that wasn't true, the driver finished the route.

In a prepared statement Conroe I.S.D. tells Fox 26, "A Conroe bus driver exited the bus to go to the restroom while students were on board. The driver has been terminated."

Foster-Sorrell says her calls to the district have been ignored and she's been offered no explanation as to how the driver got lost when he's been driving that same route since school started.

"Maybe he was sick maybe something came on all of a sudden," Foster-Sorell said. "No matter what it is, nothing would make what he did ok."
