Bus takes wrong students on field trip

LITTLE FERRY, NJ About 30 Ridgefield Park High School students boarded the bus around 7:45 a.m. Wednesday, thinking it was the bus they ride every day. But the driver had shown up early to take seventh- and eighth-graders to Six Flags Great Adventure at 9 a.m.

The students became worried when the bus reached the New Jersey Turnpike and called their parents and the school when the driver wouldn't stop.

The driver eventually listened to them and exited the interstate, then turned around.

School officials had called police, who stopped the bus. An officer rode aboard until it reached the school.
