Valley City, ND – A Fargo child who was attending his first week of kindergarten somehow mistakenly got dropped off in Valley City by the school bus that was to bring him home.
The child eventually did get back home by hitchhiking the 75 miles because he had “seen how to hitchhike on TV.”
The boy’s parents, who were already totally freaking out when their young boy was not on the after-school bus, freaked out even more upon discovering what had actually happened.
The bus driver claims he did not know the boy was still on the bus.
The company that owns the bus (whose slogan is “We put the bus in business!”) says it sadly regrets and strongly denies that it ever happened.
The boy, who is doing fine, says Valley City looked like a very nice place to possibly move to when he gets older.
