13-year-old saves the day

A few months ago, a school bus driver in LaGrange, Texas, had a medical emergency while driving a bus full of kids. As he lost consciousness, his bus started drifting off the side of the road when one passenger, 13-year-old Karson Vega, realized something was wrong. At the last second, he was able to grab the steering wheel and prevent a crash. But there's more.

The driver was only semi-conscious and would not take his foot off the accelerator, so Karson jumped onto his lap and steered the bus another two miles until he was able to reach the brake pedal and pull over. He even turned on the hazard lights. Another student named Kyler Buzek kept the other kids calm while calling 911. Nobody was hurt, and the bus driver is recovering. Karson admitted it wasn't his first time behind the wheel. He got to drive his uncle's 18-wheeler once, so he says the bus was not very intimidating.
