Abilene ISD school bus drivers get safety training

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Class was in session Monday for Abilene school bus drivers.

These Key City drivers learned about the proper ways to evacuate students if they were to be involved in a collision, with some of the bus seats set on fire to provide real-life scenarios.

The Union Pacific railroad teaches the school bus drivers how to handle railroad crossings during their commutes to and from school.

"Railroad safety, it's extremely important, especially when youre carrying the most precious cargo in the world," says Ryan Mosa, Union Pacific Supervisor of Public Safety.

The training was for all drivers who operate buses for the Abilene Independent School District, and was planned before Friday's crash involving the Wylie ISD school bus in Abilene.
