Boy stops school bus after driver collapses

NAPLES, Florida

Jackson Bonar, 11, was the last kid on his bus coming home from school when, just blocks from his home, his bus driver suffered a medical condition.

"He started curving and he made a strange face and me and started going toward a tree, so I put my foot on the brakes but the bus was still moving so I turned the steering wheel so the airbag wouldn't go out and hurt him anymore," said Bonar.

The sixth grader took the wheel, avoided a tree and guided the bus into a fence as he hit the brakes.

"I was very scared," said Bonar.

The bus driver was taken to Naples Community Hospital.
