East Texas Bus Driver Accused Of Hitting Girl Back Behind The Wheel

The Palestine school bus driver accused of hitting a 6-year-old girl two weeks ago is back behind the wheel.   The Palestine Superintendent says the girl, Jurnee Foreman is still recovering at Dallas Children's Hospital.   After the accident Palestine ISD put the driver, Lee Ann Whisman, 50 on administrative leave. Palestine police say their investigation turned up no evidence of negligence, and Whisman will not be charged in the accident.   Because of that, Palestine ISD says it has allowed Whisman to drive again on a different route. We tried contacting the family of Jurnee Foreman, but was unable to reach them.
