Lawsuit filed against CCSD, Durham bus services

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A lawsuit filed against the Charleston County School District and Durham bus services alleges a bus driver dropped off a six-year-old on the side of the road, leaving that child to wander for blocks.

The incident happened in April of 2014.

The lawsuit was filed earlier this month by Rodney and Kanseha Jackson.

They are the legal guardians of the young girl who was a student at Pepperhill Elementary School in North Charleston.

According to the suit, they say the bus driver dropped the girl off near Ashley Phosphate Road without an adult there to pick her up.

They say she then wandered for blocks along the busy intersection.

The suit says they found the girl in a Dollar General parking lot, hystercally crying.
