Investigation underway after Omaha bus driver allegedly refused to let kids off

OMAHA, Neb. - Omaha police are investigating an incident after receiving numerous calls about a bus driver not letting kids off.

OPD Lieutenant Nick Muller said just before 5 p.m. dispatch received a call from a parent who said her daughter is on a bus and the driver wasn't letting people off.

Officials reported that another call came in reporting there were children screaming on a bus in the area near 77nd and Ames.

Authorities say a third caller said children were hanging out of the bus windows saying the driver won't let them out.

Police located the bus stopped at 54th and Pratt.

"It's looking like it could be a misunderstanding," said Muller. "We're still trying to get through all that, talk to the witnesses, try and watch some video, and go from there."

No injuries were reported.

The investigation is ongoing.
