Driver Accused Of Kicking Mom, Crying Baby Off Bus
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon's largest transit agency says it's investigating a complaint that a driver kicked a woman and her crying baby off a bus in suburban Portland, saying, "I can't drive
with that noise."
Mary Fetsch, a TriMet spokeswoman, says drivers are not supposed to eject passengers from "vulnerable populations," including women transporting children.
A bus passenger, Jennifer Chapman, says the baby wasn't that loud and all the other passengers got off the bus in protest. The incident allegedly took place on a bus in Hillsboro on Thursday
Fetsch says she's unsure whether the bus was equipped with a video camera.
TriMet declined to identify the driver, who has been put on administrative leave. The agency says she has been with the transit agency for 10 years.
