CARMEL, Indiana -- A Carmel bus driver who crashed into the side of a home in late May has resigned Tuesday morning.
A spokesperson with Carmel Clay Schools said 74-year-old Jack Thomas handed in his resignation in writing. The school district said Thomas has been employed with them for 12 years.
Thomas sustained minor injuries after crashing a bus into a Carmel home on May 23. Police said the bus drove through a ditch and into the backyard, before coming to a rest in the side of the house.
Surveillance video on the bus captured the incident on tape. Thomas was seen not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Police said Thomas was making a turn but turned to wide, hitting the curb. They said he bounced out of his seat before the bus crashed into the home.
A family of four was inside the home when the accident occurred. They said were just waking up when they heard the loud crash.
Thomas was cited for not wearing a seatbelt.
