Police cite AL daycare driver for overcrowded van
FAIRFIELD, Ala. (AP) — A driver for an Alabama daycare center has been accused of crowding too many children into a van and transporting some of them without seatbelts.
Police Chief Leon Davis told WBMA-TV (http://bit.ly/11g7rFd ) that officers stopped a van Friday used by the Alice Christian Academy. A motorist had called police to report that the overloaded van was swerving on the roadway.
Davis said officers found 28 children crowded into the 15-passenger van. Many of the children were not wearing seatbelts. No injuries were reported.
The driver was cited for reckless driving and driving without insurance.
The daycare center declined to comment to WBMA-TV. Daycare officials could not be reached for comment Saturday morning.
