"my son has down's so she always made sure he was in his class and she was just very, very caring towards me and my family." the bus driver says she has no idea why the bus suddenly accelerated and jumped the curb. authorities say -- so far -- it doesn't look like drugs or alcohol were factors -- and the bus was just inspected last week. police found no mechanical problems at all. the mother of a five-year-old now faces charges after a deadly crash. a car crashed into a business in clermont sunday -- killing the driver, james tackett. police say he might have been drinking. a five-year-old girl was in the backseat at the time -- but is expected to be ok.

4:37 am

"it's like brainwashing to me. it's the same song. 30 seconds over and over and over again," it actually affected us in the
