    Fine work, Mr. Swift! Thank you for your service to your school district.

    I wish drivers would use more caution on Harper Road. The afternoons are chaotic where Harper Road passes Starkey Elementary school farther down from where this accident occurred. It seems hardly anyone drives the correct speed limit in the school zone and the "no cell phone" warning is mostly ignored. KPD occasionally comes to patrol and they never get a chance to sit with their radar gun for more than 5 minutes before they're off after speeders.

    Kudos to Greg Swift, the bus driver, who did an excellent job handling the accident and the kids on the bus afterward. The bus was almost completely full at the time of the wreck and he did an excellent job ensuring the students on the bus were as safe, as could be, while unloading them and getting them away from the bus.
