College Park Bus Driver Saves Kids From Burning School Bus

Twenty elementary school children were riding home from school earlier this week when their bus caught fire. (Don’t worry, this story has a happy ending for everyone except the bus.)

According to an account posted on Facebook by a local parent, driver Renita Smith calmly got all 20 kids off the bus even as it was going up in flames. She didn’t seem to think her heroic act was all that remarkable: “I am a mom of two kids. It’s my job to save them,” she said.

Earlier this year, more than a dozen people were injured when a car crashed into a school bus in Baltimore County. There was no fire that time, though.

In this case, all 20 kids made it home safe. The bus doesn’t look so good, however.
