Movie shoot disrupts school buses

Ohio parents who say their children endured long, complicated walks home are panning the disruption of school bus service for a Hollywood movie shoot. Scenes for a new Denzel Washington movie called "Unstoppable" are being filmed this week in Bellaire in eastern Ohio, 112 miles southeast of Cleveland.

Parents say children were dropped off at a shopping plaza on Wednesday when the filming kept a bus from completing its route. Gregory Jeffreys says his 12-year-old daughter wasn't sure how to walk home and it took her an hour. He says children were in danger.

The Bellaire school system is apologizing. Superintendent Tony Scott says the district should have notified parents about the bus diversion but "dropped the ball."
