Jeff Davis school bus driver fired...administration not saying why

JEFF DAVIS CO., MS (WDAM)- A Jeff Davis County school bus driver was fired and Superintendent Ike Haynes isn't explaining just why. However, several Jeff Davis County parents say it was because the bus driver was driving recklessly.

The parents said their children came home a couple weeks ago saying their bus driver wrecked the school bus twice in one day.

During our first call to Superintendent Haynes he would not confirm or deny the allegations.

Haynes said "It is an allegation that has been under investigation and I am handling this matter"

Within 15 minutes after our first conversation with Superintendent Haynes, he called back to tell us the driver had been taken off the route and is no longer with the district.
