    Redona says on Friday morning her son jumped on a Beverly public school bus and headed off to Cove Elementary School.

    "I put him on the bus myself," she said.

    The kindergartner never made it to class. Redona says the driver finished his route, came back to the lot unaware Ian was still inside, and then left.

    "I could not imagine," she said.

    After several hours in the heat, Ian managed to get off the bus and walked nearly half a mile, crossing a train track, walking through busy traffic and eventually ending up at the intersection of Rantoul and Elliot streets.

    Ian’s dad, Erion Hyso, says that's where his son ran into the side of a moving car.

    "Right there my mind went to something, God forbid bad you know," he said.

    Thankfully, a Good Samaritan saw Ian and immediately called police. He was rushed to the hospital and released with a few scrapes and bruises.

    "And they checked he was fine," Redona said.

    Beverly police, along with the department of children and families, are now investigating. The district is not naming the bus driver but says he is suspended and released a statement that reads in part, “This bus did have a video camera which we are reviewing. We provide significant training for drivers and our procedures are strict as student safety is our highest priority."

    The statement added that drivers are required to check the bus at the bus yard to be sure it is empty. The school district says that procedure was not followed in this incident.

    "He’s like no, I don’t want to go to school anymore. And he loves school," Redona said of Ian.
