KANSAS CITY, Mo. - 41 Action News was the only one to speak with two women who say the bus driver, Elmer Scott Jr., is like a brother to them.
They want everyone to know he is one of the safest drivers they know.
"We just wanted to come out and show him that we love him. And we know Jesus loves him,” one said
The two are worried about their friend who they've known since the early 90s.
"He's a very caring person. He takes his job very seriously. He's always on time, he's never late," the other woman said.
They didn't want to be identified because they are bus drivers themselves. They were trained by the man who is now hospitalized after an accident where he was behind the wheel.
"We know that he was doing the right thing because that's the type of person he is with everything he do,"
The women describe him as “one of the most safest driver trainers” they know.
We're told Scott is expected to stay hospitalized for at least Wednesday night.
