Baines Middle School students on the bus said it started when the driver became angry because several children on the bus were being loud.
The students said the driver stopped the bus on a busy bridge in traffic, packed up her purse and got up to leave.
"We asked her, 'Why did you stop the bus?' And she turned off the engine and threw the keys at me, and said, 'No, since you want to ask questions and make problems, you drive the bus.' It was terrifying," said student Morgan Billingsley.
