Student Disciplined After Stopping Out-Of-Control School Bus

SEASIDE, Calif. (AP) - A 15-year-old girl who stopped her out-of-control school bus must now serve a Saturday detention because she was supposed to be in class when the accident happened.

Marina High School student Amanda Rouse was on a bus with 40
elementary school students when the driver fell out of her seat.

Rouse jumped up and applied the brakes, bringing the bus to a halt after striking two parked cars.

She's now being punished for failing to call in sick that day.

Rouse says she fell ill on the way to school, but instead of calling in sick, she asked the bus driver for a lift back to the bus yard.
