Parents of students on the bus are telling us a very different story about what happened on the school bus accident.
Parents said their children were telling the bus driver that the children were next to the bus and he did not stop for them. Parents also said this is not the first time they have had problems with the bus driver. One parent said he has contacted the school district four times about the conduct of the bus driver.

KRCG is trying to find out what happened at the Laurie Mall this morning when two kids were struck by a bus.
The Morgan County School District said the brother and sister were running along-side the bus. When the bus circled into the parking lot, the school district said the kids were struck.
Laurie Police Chief Shane Edwards said witnesses reported that the children were close to the bus and the driver did not see them when he circled back into the lot. He said the sister was pulled under the bus and the brother was trying to pull her from underneath the bus when his leg got underneath the tire.
Edwards said both children have broken legs as a result of the incident and that the boy's leg will require surgery and ongiong treatment.
He said in a release that the boy is a hero and should be commended for his efforts to save his sister.
