No students were on board when the crash happened. We're told the driver had just started her route, on her way to her second stop. The students she picks up attend Yes Prep West.

The driver also wasn't hurt. It's unclear what caused her to crash. First Student, the company that owns the bus, says it's looking into why the driver lost control.

"We're waiting for the bus and it doesn't come and one of the parents said wow this isn't normal," Rivas said.

She heard from a another parent the bus had crashed. Rivas told Eyewitness News her kids have complained about the driver in the past.

"They were shaken up, shaken up. (I'm) glad that they weren't on the bus. Then they started telling me about the problems, that she hits the curb," Rivas said.

A spokesperson with Yes Prep schools says no formal complaints have been filed against the bus driver in the last six months.
