Horry County Schools Face Lawsuit Filed By A Parent

On February 15th of last year, a Horry County School student fell out of a bus that was traveling at the speed of 20 miles per hour.

A parent is suing Horry County Schools after an incident happened on a moving bus.

On February 15th of last year, a Horry County School student fell out of a bus that was traveling at the speed of 20 miles per hour.

The driver allegedly did not perform a sufficient pre-trip inspection of the bus to ensure the emergency exit door was properly secured.

The driver is also accused of failing to ensure the students sat in their assigned seats while being picked up on the Carolina Forest Elementary school route.

The lawsuit says the kids on the bus were horseplaying and hitting students in the seats in front of and behind them and the bus driver failed to address the behavior.

As students were engaging in the horseplay, the emergency exit door opened and one student fell out. She hit her head on the ground and suffered road rash on her hands and body.

Horry County Schools has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
