Disabled Students Miss School After Batteries Stolen From Buses
More than 100 batteries were stolen from the lot on South Fourth Street and 70th Avenue in West Miami-Dade, according to WSVN. Each bus uses three batteries, so about 32 buses were out of commission this morning.
"We specialize in handicapped kids," bus driver Ricardo Valdez told the news station. "They couldn't go to school because most of the parents don't have a vehicle to transport wheelchairs. That's why we give them transportation."
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
