School bus company was unaware of driver's record, attorney says
By the time he allegedly fell asleep behind the wheel of a bus carrying 18 schoolchildren earlier this week, Mohamed M. Wasuge had racked up a host of traffic violations and concerns about his attentiveness.
How did someone with a questionable driving record end up at the helm of a school bus? Because under Minnesota law, his violations hadn’t risen to a serious enough level to warrant termination of his bus driving privileges.
An attorney for Bille Bus Transportation, which employed Wasuge, said the company would have never hired him had it known about his record.
