A six-year-old girl suffered a concussion on her school bus ride home last Friday afternoon. The parents of Aliah Bilberry are upset that the bus driver didn’t call them, the girl’s school or Apple Bus company dispatch after the incident….The couple said that Aliah, a kindergartner at University Academy charter school, fell asleep on the bus ride home. They say at some point the driver hit the brakes and Aliah fell forward, hitting her head on a metal bar behind the bus driver. The couple’s 13-year-old daughter was also on the bus. The teen told her parents that the bus driver offered her younger sister a paper towel to wipe the blood from her head, but did nothing more to make sure the six-year-old was okay…. Kline went on to say that while University Academy can’t force Apple Bus company to fire the driver, but he’s told Apple Bus that the driver has been banned from transporting students for University Academy….
