No Glasses, Bad Brakes

The very sad story of the Chippewa Falls band gets even worse.

News reports tell us that the 78-year-old driver of the bus was not wearing his glasses at the time of the accident, and that the bus' brake system was seriously deficient--that the bus SHOULD have been "grounded" for repairs.

Maybe the accident was not preventable under the best of circumstances--but these revelations tell us that the circumstances were not even CLOSE to "best."

That bus contractor should be out of business soon. Too bad, but they brought it on themselves.
