Parents sue Hillsborough schools, say driver kicked girl off bus

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA)- The parents of an autistic child who say their daughter was injured when she was kicked off a Hillsborough County school bus by the driver last year are suing the school district.

Curtis and Margaret Johnson seek at least $15,000 in damages, claiming the district has failed to train school bus drivers and other staff on how to handle students with disabilities.

They say the fall caused their daughter, Kyinesha Johnson, to fracture her ankle, which left her unable to walk for two months. The lawsuit states the district violated the girl’s rights under the 14th Amendment, the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
