KOAM MORNING NEWS TO KNOW 2-12

Updated:

LEFT ON THE BUS

  • A Carl Junction School bus driver could be facing charges of "endangering the welfare of a child" after a child was left on the bus.  A four-year old student was left on the bus for almost two hours after the driver was supposed to drop off the child at daycare.  The superintendent says he is not allowed to publicly discuss how the district disciplined the driver, but he says the district handled the matter appropriately.

US HWY 169 CONSTRUCTION

  • Major construction is coming to US HWY 169, in Neosho County, Kansas.  The section of the highway between Earlton and Iola will be completely rebuilt.  Commuters can expect wider, completely paved shoulders, and re-done driving lanes.  Neosho County Commissioners met with a KDOT engineer on Friday, for an informational session on the project, and to discuss potential problems that come with construction.

GRAND CANYON CRASH

  • Officials say the passengers on board a tour helicopter that crashed in the Grand Canyon over the weekend, have been identified as British nationals, ranging in age from 29 to 42.  Three people were killed, four were injured.  Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the crash.

WEINSTEIN LAWSUIT

  • A plan to finalize the sale of the Weinstein company is put on hold after the New York Attorney General announced a lawsuit against the movie studio and its founders.  The complaint states the company repeatedly broke New York law by failing to protect its employees from pervasive sexual harassment, intimidation, and discrimination.
