Posted on September 6, 2012

PITTSBURGH — Two Keystone Oaks School District students climbed out of the rear emergency exit of a school bus and walked across a bridge amid traffic Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Police said that the boys, ages 12 and 14, had begun acting unruly, and one was poking holes in the seats of the bus with a sharp stick. When the bus driver pulled over, the boys jumped out of the bus’ rear emergency exit.

A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation employee spotted the boys and drove them to safety. Both boys were cited for disorderly conduct, and the 12-year-old was also cited for criminal mischief.
