SPRING, TX- Talk about too close for comfort! A bus driver's dangerous decision has administrators at Klein ISD pumping the breaks. It happened back on February 10th, but thanks to social media, the video is now trending on and off campus. A bus full of students from Klein-Oak caught an entirely too close call on train tracks less than a mile from school. Apparently, the bus driver drove over the train tracks just enough to clear them. As the next train came barreling by it missed the bus by inches! Klein ISD issued this statement: "The investigation revealed that the driver did not follow standard procedures when crossing the railroad track with the train coming in the distance. The bus driver is no longer employed by the district." This caught-on-camera craziness is a lesson we mustn't forget.
