17-year-old Graceann Rumer possibly saved not only her life but the lives of dozens of other children when her school bus driver had a heart attack. Rumer’s quick thinking got the bus off the road and out of traffic. 51-year-old driver Charles Duncan passed out while driving his students home on January 26, losing control of the wheel.
Rumer immediately jumped into action, taking the wheel and turning the bus away from the oncoming traffic. With Duncan’s feet still blocking the brakes, she pulled the bus to the side of the road and put it in park. None of the students were injured, but the driver passed away shortly afterward.
We at Hoglund Transportation would like to applaud Rumer for an excellent job! For showing such control over herself in a fearful situation and protecting the lives of others! Good Job!
