Killeen school bus

A KISD bus heads out to pick up kids from school on Tuesday, Aug. 27.

A bus driver was accosted by a parent while attempting to drop students off at a stop Thursday, according to KISD officials.

"A bus driver was approached by a parent while attempting to drop students off at a stop," according to Tania Maya, chief communications and marketing officer for the KISD. "The adult assaulted the bus driver, prompting police to be called."

The parent reportedly entered the bus, interfering with the lawful transportation of school children, Maya said, which is a Class C misdemeanor. The incident happened near the intersection Cantabrian Drive and Loma Vista Parkway.

"KISD police and district administration are currently investigating the alleged assault and intend to pursue appropriate action regarding each action as diligently as possible," Maya said.

No students were involved in the altercation, she said.
