Police are continuing their investigation into an alleged road rage assault that happened on a school bus with children aboard in Brighton.
Boston police responded to call at 3:42 p.m. on Tuesday of an assault and battery in progress aboard bus #B422 near the intersection of South Waverly Avenue and Lincoln Street.
At the scene, officers found the bus driver laying on the ground near the bus door. He told police he was assaulted by a man who entered the vehicle.
The assault suspect remained at the scene and told officers the school bus driver struck his car and fled, so he waited for the bus to stop before he approached the vehicle. He also told authorities a shoving match ensued and that he slipped down the stairs as he was exiting the bus.
The alleged road rage confrontation occurred while kids were aboard and some witnesses supported the assault suspect’s claims. Others told authorities that punches were thrown.
The school bus driver was taken to an area hospital to treat their minor injuries, according to police.
Boston Public Schools said no students were injured during the altercation and their parents were notified of the incident.
No charges have been filed at this point. The alleged assault remains under investigation.
