SUITLAND, Md. — A 4-year-old girl in Prince George’s County was dropped off at the wrong bus stop all alone after her first day of school.

Local news outlets report that the child was mistakenly dropped off nearly a mile away from her assigned stop Tuesday afternoon.

Christal Lawson, the child’s mother, says she was waiting to pick up her daughter at the bus stop next to their home, but the girl wasn’t onboard when the bus pulled up.

She says she eventually found her daughter near the spot where she was dropped off.

Prince George’s County Public Schools spokesman Raven Hill says prekindergarten students aren’t allowed leave the bus unless a guardian is physically present to pick them up. The district is reviewing the incident and disciplinary action could be taken.
