The heartbroken mother-of three children who were victims in a school bus crash has spoken out about her attempts to report the bus driver for reckless driving.
Jasmine Mateen said that since the school year started in August, her children have come home each day complaining about their bus driver.
‘I have been calling complaining about this bus driver since August,’ she told NBC News.
Mateen said she called the Board of Education and Woodmore Elementary School and even wrote letters to the school and to the bus driver, Johnthony Walker.
Walker has been arrested and charged with five counts of vehicular homicide after the bus crashed and killed five children and injured 23 more on Monday afternoon.
One of those victims was Mateen’s six-year-old daughter, who has not been identified.
Mateen said that the last words Walker said to the children before he sped around a curb and crashed the bus, were reportedly: ‘Are y’all ready to die?’
