LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Despite three crashes Monday involving Jefferson County Public Schools buses, the district said data shows a three year trend of bus crash numbers decreasing.
The district said the majority of bus crashes are not the fault of their drivers. Regardless of fault, they are investigated by the district to pinpoint exactly what happened and any potential lessons that can be learned.
"What we do is investigate obviously and determine what happened," said Dr. Donna Hargens, the JCPS Superintendent, "but the safety of our students is priority number one so our bus drivers have a lot of training and we continue to assess where we can do anything better, but again we determine if it's anything we could have controlled."
JCPS bus drivers receive about 80 hours of training, which district leaders say is above the state minimum.
