13 Year Old Takes The Wheel When Bus Driver Has Medical Emergency
A 13 year old middle school student saved the lives of several kids when the bus driver had a medical emergency. KXAN reports, Karson Vega took the wheel when the bus started careening, and going off the road. The LaGrange, Texas 7th grader sat on the driver's lap, seizing the wheel, and drove a couple miles on state highway 71. Vega says his parents allow him to practice driving on country roads, adding “My uncle let me drive his 18-wheeler, so it’s pretty much the same thing.” The driver is reportedly out of the hospital and recovering nicely.
